The high humidity continues in Philadelphia so I decided to just give in and have a summery meal. I made this inside on a grill pan, but the burger can be made on an outdoor grill just as easily. I will focus more on making the fries, because the burger is mostly stacking ingredients.
4 hamburger patties
4 slices of pepper jack cheese
1/2 a red onion, thinly sliced
4 hamburger buns
Sweet Potato Fries:
4 larger sized sweet potatoes, cut into wedges
1/2 stick unsalted butter
2 teaspoons chipotle powder
1/3 cup mayo
1 tablespoon chili sauce (like Sriracha)
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into wedges. I honestly don’t think I succeeded in actually getting “wedges” but oh well. Place on a baking sheet lined with tin foil and sprinkle with salt.
Melt the butter, either on a stovetop or in the microwave.
Drizzle the melted butter and sprinkle the chipotle powder over the sweet potato wedges.
Cook for 30-40 minutes, turning each piece over half way through so that they cook evenly.
While the fries are cooking, combine the Sriracha and mayo in a bowl.
Cook the burgers to desired degree of doneness. Toast the buns on the grill as well. Add about 1 teaspoon of the aoili to the tops of each bun. Top each burger with one slice of cheese, a slice of red onion and 1/4 of the avocado.
Serve with the fries and the aioli.
I am in love with this dinner. I seriously considered making this again the next night. The sweet potato fries were the perfect mix of sweet and spicy, especially when paired with the aioli. I could eat the fries and aioli by themselves! I always love avocado on burgers, and the addition of pepper jack cheese and red onion made it even more delicious. This is a must try meal!
