To give these smoky chorizo burgers a burst of bright flavor, you’ll glaze rounds of red onion with sweet maple syrup and a bit of sherry vinegar, then layer it all onto soft toasted buns. Simply roasted potatoes, served with a tangy, creamy dipper, lend balance to the burger’s vibrant flavors.

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; cut into 1-inch-wide wedges. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; 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.

Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the sauce:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the sauce:

While the potatoes roast, peel the onion and slice into 1/2-inch rounds, keeping the layers intact. Halve the buns. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). In a bowl, combine the fromage blanc, half the vinegar, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Season with salt and pepper.

Form the patties:
3 Form the patties:

While the potatoes continue to roast, in a medium bowl, combine the chorizo and breadcrumbs. Gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into two 1/2-inch-thick patties. Transfer to a plate.

Cook the patties & glaze the onion:
4 Cook the patties & glaze the onion:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and 4 onion rounds (you may have extra onion) in an even layer. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until lightly charred. Flip (carefully, as the oil may splatter) and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until the onion rounds are softened and the patties are cooked through Turn off the heat. Leaving the onion rounds in the pan, transfer the patties to a plate. Add the maple syrup and remaining vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Spoon the mixture over the onion rounds until combined and the onions are coated. Transfer to the plate of cooked patties. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

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