A note about serious food allergies

There's a lot of flavor combinations we try that are a bit new and exciting. New and exciting is great! But we also know what works, what's good, what's tried and true. Gooey, melty, salty delicious cheese and sweet, sweet BBQ sauce on a burger is as classic as classic can be. But we give you a little extra love here with a side of not just fries, but fried pickles, a tart crunch like no other. Burger, fries, pickles… classic.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, forming four patties instead of two and stacking them to serve.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes per side.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until burger is heated through, 4-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into ¼" fries and pat dry.

    Place fries on prepared baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Toss with seasoning blend and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 25-28 minutes, tossing fries halfway through.

    While fries bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Pat pickles dry.

    Combine tempura mix, 1/4 cup water, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl until a pancake-like batter forms. If too thick, add additional water, 1 tsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Divide ground beef into two equally-sized patties and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Heat Oil and Cook Patties

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and let heat, 5 minutes.

    While oil heats, place another large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add patties to hot pan and cook until browned and burgers reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Top patties with cheese. Cover, and set aside until melted, 2-3 minutes

  4. 4

    Fry the Pickles

    Add pickles to mixing bowl with tempura batter, coating completely.

    Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.

    Frying one at a time, remove pickle from batter, shaking off excess batter. Place pickle in hot oil away from you. Fry until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Transfer pickle to towel-lined plate. Repeat with remaining pickles.

  5. 5

    Heat Buns and Finish Dish

    Place buns directly on oven rack in hot oven, cut side up. Toast until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom bun with patty, BBQ sauce, fried pickles, and top bun. Bon appétit!
