At the time of this writing (January 2021) nothing sounds better to us than going to sit in a brew pub for a couple of hours, breathing free without worry as we sip on lager and eat, laughing with friends. The dream may still be a few months away, but the flavor may not be, as the cheddar/apple on this burger is nothing short of sublime. The mustard-y potato salad pairs beautifully with the burger, completely a meal that brings us happy memories of a less worrisome time.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient

Prepare the Ingredients
Peel apple, quarter, and remove core. Cut into ¼" slices.
Cut potatoes into ½" dice.
Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.
Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly.
Cook the Apples
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Stir apples into hot pan until coated with oil. Then cook undisturbed until edges begin to brown, 5-6 minutes.
Stir in shallots, then cook undisturbed until beginning to brown, 3-4 minutes.
Add ¼ cup water. Reduce heat to medium. Cover, and cook undisturbed until fork-tender, 7-10 minutes.
Uncover, and cook until water is almost entirely evaporated, 5-7 minutes.
Remove from burner. Taste, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper, if desired. Cover again.
While apples cook, prepare potato salad.
Make the Potato Salad
Place a medium pot with potatoes covered by water to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, cook until fork-tender, 7-9 minutes.
Drain potatoes in a colander. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
Add mustard, white portions of green onions (reserve remaining for garnish), and a pinch of salt and pepper and stir to combine. Set aside.
While potatoes boil, prepare burgers.
Prepare and Cook the Burgers
In another mixing bowl, combine ground beef, 1 Tbsp. garlic aioli (reserve remaining for buns), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Form into two evenly-sized patties.
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add patties to hot pan. Cook until lightly charred and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.
Remove from burner. Top patties with a cheese slice and let melt. Transfer patties to a plate and tent with foil. Wipe pan clan and reserve.
Toast Buns and Finish Dish
Return pan used to cook patties to medium-low heat. Add pretzel buns, cut side down to hot pan and press gently. Cook undisturbed until lightly toasted, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner. Top cut sides of buns with remaining garlic aioli.
Taste potato salad, and add a pinch of salt and pepper if desired.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom bun with patty and apples and top bun. Garnish potato salad with green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
