After you take a bite of this, you'll wish all burgers were California burgers. After all, East Coast burgers may be hip, and Midwest burgers may make you feel alright, but they don't have rich avocado sitting on top of the patty, and that patty on a creamy aioli of tart tomato. We've been all around this great big world, tasted all the burgers. Well you know the rest.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 3, cooking until heated through, 4-6 minutes per side.
Roast the Potatoes
Cut potatoes into ¼"-thick fries and pat dry.
Place fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, seasoning blend, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until lightly browned, 25-28 minutes, tossing fries halfway through.
Carefully remove from oven. Toss roasted fries with truffle oil. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.
While potatoes roast, prepare ingredients.
Prepare Ingredients and Make Aioli
Halve avocado and remove pit by carefully tapping pit with the blade of your knife so it sticks. Gently twist knife to release pit. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Cut into ¼" slices.
Combine mayonnaise, pesto, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Make the Burgers
Form ground beef into two patties, about 5" in diameter. Season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. 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. Transfer patties to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Toast the Buns
Return pan used to cook burgers to low heat. Add buns, cut side down, to hot, dry pan. Toast buns until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from burner.
