Chef Matt Basile
½ lb ground beef
4 slices American cheese
2 brioche buns
2 lettuce leaves
4 slices sandwich pickles
½ large white onion
1-2 russet potatoes
Canola oil for frying
1 square egg ring
Separate the ground beef into two equal balls. Using the egg ring, shape the ground beef into square burgers. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
Add a cast iron pan to the plancha and add the canola oil, make sure you leave about an inch of space to the top of the pan, so the oil doesn’t spill over when you add the potatoes. Allow to oil to heat up.
Slice your potatoes into fries and place in a bowl of cold water. Let sit at least 15 minutes.
Add the fries to the oil, flipping occasionally until golden brown and crispy.
While the fries cook, place your burgers on the grill. Cook about 3-4 minutes on one side, flip and add two slices of American cheese. Let cook another 3-4 minutes or until cooked through and cheese is melted.
Slice your tomato and onion. If it’s your preference, toast your brioche buns. If not, add ketchup to the top buns and add two slices of tomatoes to each and two slices of pickles. Add mayo to the bottom buns. Place the lettuce on top of the bottom buns.
Remove the cheeseburger from the grill and place on the the bottom buns, add a slice of onion and close.
Remove the fries from the oil and season with salt, toss to coat. Serve your burgers and fries together.
