A note about serious food allergies

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 fries for that extra special something.

Before You Cook

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut sweet potato into ½"-thick fries. Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices. Peel onion and slice into ¼" rounds.

  • Step 2 - Roast Fries and Make Aioli
    2

    Roast Fries and Make Aioli

    Place sweet potato fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and ¼ tsp. salt. Spread into a single layer, and roast 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 fries roast, combine mayonnaise, sun-dried tomato pesto, and 1 tsp. miso (reserve remaining for patties) in a mixing bowl and set aside.

  • Step 3 - Make the Patties
    3

    Make the Patties

    Combine ground beef, remaining miso, remaining Parmesan, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in another mixing bowl. Form into two patties, 5" in diameter. Make a small dimple in middle of each burger. This will prevent patties from bulging when cooked.

  • Step 4 - Toast the Buns

    Toast the Buns

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Brush cut side of buns with 2 tsp. olive oil and toast, cut side down, until golden brown, 1-2 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 5 - Cook the Burgers and Mushrooms
    5

    Cook the Burgers and Mushrooms

    Return pan used to toast buns to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and burgers to hot pan. Cook on one side until brown, 3-4 minutes. Flip burgers, and add mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Cook until mushrooms are brown and burgers reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-5 minutes. Burgers may finish before mushrooms are done browning. Transfer burgers to a plate and top with sliced white cheddar. Plate dish as pictured on front of card. Bon appétit!
