A note about serious food allergies

What do you get when sweet, sticky bacon-jam meets cheesy, beefy goodness on a fancy brioche bun? A burger that says, "I've arrived!” Our burgers don't really talk, but here at Home Chef, we believe in imagination. And we've imagined Yukon potato chips rounding out this culinary experience with their naturally creamy, buttery flavor. We finish it with a pickle to give this feast a briny bite. Enjoy the fruits of our imagination - you've earned it.

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with foil. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Peel and julienne onion (cut into thin strips). Scrub an slice potatoes into thin rounds, and soak in cold water for 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Cut two slices of bacon in half and cut the 3rd slice into ½" dice.

    Cook the Bacon

    While potatoes are soaking, place bacon in a medium pan over medium heat and cook, stirring, until crispy, about 7-9 minutes for the diced bacon and a minute longer for the bacon halves. Remove bacon from pan as it crisps to a paper-towel lined plate. Discard all but 1 tsp. of bacon drippings from pan, which will be used to sauté the onions.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Potatoes

    Cook the Potatoes

    In a mixing bowl, toss sliced potatoes with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt until evenly and fully coated. Arrange in a single layer on prepared baking sheet avoiding overlap. Top with one more piece of sprayed aluminum foil big enough to cover, and place a second baking sheet on top to press them down. Bake chips for 20-25 minutes until they begin to brown and crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and season with a pinch of salt.

  • Step 4 - Make the Jam
