A note about serious food allergies

Want a burger that's more fancy than your average? A little bit of decadence between two buns? This fancy pants patty is dressed up with rich fontina cheese, luxurious truffle, and that 70s throwback that always delights, cheesy fondue. (Is that redundant? Doesn't matter it's delicious.) With a side of frites (not fries!), this burger will make you feel like a millionaire. (Or billionaire, this isn't the 70s.) Tip: Make potatoes easier to cut by making a large slice that leaves a flat surface. Place the flat surface on the cutting board and get to slicing and/or dicing!

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 and stacking two together in Step 5.

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

  1. 1

    Bake the Frites

    Cut potatoes into ¼" sticks and pat dry. Place potato sticks on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer. Bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 25-28 minutes, carefully tossing fries halfway through. While fries bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips. Combine ground beef and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Form into two equally-sized patties, about 5" in diameter.

  3. 3

    Cook the Onion

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and onion to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender and caramelized, 10-13 minutes. If pan becomes dry, add water 1 Tbsp. at a time. Add balsamic vinegar. Stir occasionally until vinegar has evaporated, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner. While onions cook, start burgers.

  4. 4

    Toast Rolls and Cook Patties

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Place rolls, cut side down, in hot, dry pan. Cook until lightly toasted, 2-3 minutes. Remove rolls to a plate. Keep pan over medium 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.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Tear fontina into pieces. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine fontina and cream cheese. Microwave until softened, 30-60 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir in truffle salt. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom roll with burger, sauce, onion, arugula, and top roll. Serve garlic and herb aioli on the side for dipping frites. Bon appétit!
