From the Test Kitchen

For an exciting twist on the classic burger, we’re drawing on the quintessential flavors of an Italian sausage sandwich—complete with sweet, tender glazed onion, roasted red peppers, and the aromatic spices of hot Italian pork sausage. To round out the dish, roasted potato wedges get an upgrade from a creamy garlic aioli dipper.

Hot Italian Pork Sausage Burgers with Potato Wedges & Aioli
Title

  • 2 Tbsps Mayonnaise
  • 1 oz Sliced Roasted Red Peppers
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 2 Tbsps Balsamic Vinegar
Prepare & roast the potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the potatoes, then cut into 1-inch-wide wedges. Place on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

3 Cook the patties & onion:

In a bowl, combine the cheese and sausage. Gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into two ½-inch-thick patties. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties to one side of the pan. Add the sliced onion in an even layer to the other side; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring the onion occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, or until the onion is softened and the patties are lightly browned. Flip the patties (carefully, as the oil may splatter). Cook, stirring the onion occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, or until the patties are browned and cooked through.** Turn off the heat. Leaving the onion in the pan, transfer the cooked patties to a plate. Carefully add the sugar and vinegar to the browned onion; stir until thoroughly coated. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer the glazed onion to a bowl. 

**An instant-read thermometer should register 160°F.
