    From the Test Kitchen

    A topping of creamy, subtly spicy spinach, which gets its flavor from two types of cheese, punchy garlic, and our hot sauce, gives these burgers a layer of rich umami flavor. A side of simply roasted sweet potato wedges lends this meal a classic bistro feel.

    Tips from Home Chefs

    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potato into 1-inch-wide wedges. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste Halve the buns.

    2 Roast the sweet potato

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Transfer the sweet potato wedges to the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 24 to 26 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted. Transfer to a strainer; hold or rest the strainer over a bowl. Using a spoon, press down on the cooked spinach to release as much liquid as possible. Discard the liquid, then transfer the spinach to a bowl. Add the mascarpone, half the parmesan, as much of the garlic paste as you’d like, and as much of the hot sauce as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    4 Form & cook the patties

    Place the beef and remaining spice blend in a separate bowl. Season with salt and pepper; gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into two 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 work surface. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil.

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

    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, cooked patties, and creamy spinach. Serve the burgers with the roasted potatoes. Garnish the potatoes with the remaining parmesan. Enjoy!
