Your friends and neighbors may be happy with a simple cheeseburger, but not you. You're different. Special. One slice of American cheese on a patty just won't do it for you; you need a cheeseburger that brings the cheese in oozy ounces. Well, we've got the melt-y, cheese-y, scrumptious-y Swiss fondue burger here, for all your cheese needs. The flavor doesn't end with cheese; the burger is topped with a sweet onion jam and served with fries. Treat yourself to this special burger, and leave the simple burgers behind.

    Stem and mince parsley.

    Mince garlic.

  2. 2

    Bake the Fries

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven, 20 minutes.

    Flip fries and bake until golden brown, 12-18 minutes.

    Season baked fries with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    While fries bake, make onion jam.

  3. 3

    Make the Onion Jam

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-low heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil, onion, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until soft and evenly browned, 12-15 minutes.

    Stir in 2 Tbsp. water and cook until sweet and jammy, 3-5 minutes.

    While onion cooks, make burgers.

    Remove from burner. Remove burgers to a plate.

    Wipe pan clean and reserve.
