The burger isn’t just a patty on a bun. It’s a cultural icon, a satisfying meal that can be found almost anywhere in America. There’s something comforting about its familiarity. Which isn’t to say that it has to be plain. When we’re in a gourmet mood, there are endless ways to customize the classic. Here, we’re seasoning the patties with a blend of spices, and topping them with subtly nutty Swiss cheese and a savory mushroom sauce. We’re giving the same upscale treatment to the sides: seared fingerling potatoes and peppery upland cress (a green in the mustard family).

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the potatoes. Cook 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until the onion is lightly browned and softened. Add the beef demi-glace, tomato paste and 2 tablespoons of water.

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef and spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Mix until just combined. Form the mixture into two 1-inch-thick patties. In the pan used to brown the potatoes, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and cook 3 to 4 minutes on the first side. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Top each patty with a slice of cheese; cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until the patty is cooked to your desired degree of doneness and the cheese has melted.

Place a cooked patty onto each toasted bun bottom; top with a few spoonfuls of the mushroom sauce (you may have extra) and a toasted bun top. Divide the finished burgers, dressed cress and seared potatoes between 2 dishes. Enjoy!
