    From the Test Kitchen

    These delicious burgers are layered with tangy-sweet caramelized onions and a creamy sauce inspired by Russian dressing, but with an added kick from spicy pickled jalapeño. It's all complete with a hearty side of roasted potatoes covered with melted cheddar cheese curds.

    • 3 Tbsps Ketchup
    • 1 oz Sliced Pickled Jalapeño Pepper

    1 Make the cheesy potatoes

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Wash and dry the potatoes; cut into 1/2-inch rounds. Roughly chop the cheese curds. Grate the white cheddar on the large side of a box grater. Place the potato rounds on the sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Evenly top with the chopped cheese curds and grated white cheddar. Return to the oven and roast 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, halve, peel, and thinly slice the onions. Halve the buns. Roughly chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the ketchup, mayonnaise, and as much of the chopped pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired

    Caramelize the onions
    3 Caramelize the onions

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 9 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and worcestershire sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Turn off the heat. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    Form & cook the patties
    4 Form & cook the patties

    Place the beef in a bowl; season with salt, pepper, and the remaining spice blend. Gently mix to combine. Using your hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties. Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for beef.

    Toast the buns & serve your dish
    5 Toast the buns & serve your dish

    Working in batches, add the halved buns, cut side down, to the same pan. Toast on medium- high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, as much of the sauce as you'd like, the cooked patties, and caramelized onions. Serve the burgers with the cheesy potatoes and any remaining sauce on the side. Enjoy!
