  1. 1

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into ¼" fries and pat dry.

    In a mixing bowl, combine fries, 1 tsp. olive oil, garlic salt, and breadcrumbs until evenly coated.

    Transfer fries to prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer and spray with cooking spray.

    Bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 25-30 minutes, tossing fries halfway through.

    While fries bake, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Bruschetta

    Core tomato and cut into 1/4" dice.

    In another mixing bowl, combine tomato, pesto, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

    Form ground beef into two equally-sized patties, about 5" in diameter. Season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  3. 3

    Toast the Rolls
