A note about serious food allergies

Now this is a burger: juicy ground beef topped by funky strong Swiss cheese, which itself is topped by a cheesy, rich, amazing brew of umami-bomb 'shrooms and cheese sauce. Have we mentioned cheese yet? There's also fancy-pants truffle oil on the fries. Have we mentioned cheese and mushrooms? We can't talk about this meal enough.

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 Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, cooking until burger is heated through, 4-6 minutes per side.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into ¼"-thick fries. Pat dry. Place fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven, 15 minutes, tossing fries halfway through. After 15 minutes, carefully remove from oven and toss again. Bake again until golden brown, 18-20 minutes. While potatoes cook, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Cook Burgers

    Stem mushrooms, then quarter. Form ground beef and half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for topping) into two equally-sized patties. Season patties on both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and coat generously with cooking spray. Add patties to hot pan. Cook until lightly charred on one side, 4-6 minutes. Flip patties, and top with cheese, and cook until beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Transfer patties to a plate and tent with foil. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  3. 3

    Toast the Buns

    Halve buns, if necessary. Return pan used to cook burgers to medium heat. Add buns to hot, dry pan, cut side down, and toast until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. Transfer buns to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Make the Topping

    Return pan used to toast buns to medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, mushrooms, and remaining garlic salt to hot pan. Stir often until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes. Stir in cream cheese and ¼ cup water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner. If pan becomes too dry, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time and up to ¼ cup, until desired consistency is reached.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
