Umami is a distinct flavor profile – aside from sweet, sour, salty, and bitter – that can best be described as savory, incredibly flavorful, and indescribably delicious. This dish has umami in spades! We start with a miso-marinated beef burger topped with all the fixings on a toasted brioche bun. It’s paired with Parmesan sweet potato wedges for that extra special something.

You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Cut sweet potato into ½"-thick sticks
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Peel onion and slice into ¼" rounds.
Roast Wedges and Make Sauce
Place sweet potato wedges on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and ¼ tsp. salt.
Spread into a single layer, and roast in hot oven until browned and tender, 28-33 minutes, flipping once after 15 minutes.
Rest 5 minutes on baking sheet to firm up. Garnish with half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for patties).
While wedges roast, combine mayonnaise, sun-dried tomato pesto, and 1 tsp. miso (reserve remaining for patties) in a mixing bowl and set aside.
Make the Patties
Combine ground beef, remaining miso, remaining Parmesan, and a pinch of pepper in another mixing bowl.
Form ground beef mixture into two patties, 5" in diameter. Make a small dimple in middle of each patty. This will prevent patties from bulging when cooked.
Toast the Buns
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Brush cut side of buns with 1 tsp. olive oil.
Place buns in hot pan, cut side down, and toast until golden brown, 1-2 minutes.
Remove to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.
Cook the Burgers and Mushrooms
Add 1 tsp. olive oil and burgers to hot pan. Cook on one side until browned, 4-6 minutes.
Flip burgers and add mushrooms. Stir mushrooms occasionally until browned and burgers reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Burgers may finish before mushrooms.
Transfer burgers to a plate and top each with a white cheddar slice.
