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 evenly-sized patties and stacking two to serve.

  • 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.

  1. 1

    Roast the Fries

    Cut potatoes into 1/4" thick fries. Pat dry.

    Place fries on prepared baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer.

    Roast in hot oven until lightly browned, 28-30 minutes, tossing fries halfway through.

    While fries roast, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Make Aioli and Form Burgers

    In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine 1 Tbsp. water, pesto, and mayonnaise. Set aside.

    In another mixing bowl, thoroughly combine ground beef and a pinch of salt and pepper. Form ground beef mixture into two equally-sized patties, about 5" in diameter.

  3. 3

    Toast the Buns

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add buns, cut-side down, to hot pan. Toast until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes.

    Transfer buns to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    Cook the Burgers

    Spray pan with cooking spray. Add patties to hot pan. Cook until lightly charred and patties reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.

    Top burgers with cheese. Cook until cheese melts, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner.

    While burgers cook, continue recipe.

  5. 5

    Dress Arugula and Finish Dish

    In another mixing bowl, combine arugula, 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom bun with patty, half the aioli (reserve remaining for fries), arugula, crispy peppers, and top bun. Serve remaining aioli on the side for dipping fries. Bon appétit!
