To give the classic burger a deliciously rich, rustic twist, smoky spiced patties are topped with layers of barbecue mayo, tangy pickles, and crispy fried onions.

Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes 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 28 to 30 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the barbecue mayo:

While the sweet potatoes roast, thinly slice the scallions. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the buns. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and barbecue sauce.

Make the dipping sauce:
3 Make the dipping sauce:

While the sweet potatoes continue to roast, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced scallions and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the sour cream. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Wipe out the pan.

In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and 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.

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

Add the buns, cut side down, to the pan of reserved fond (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Working in batches if necessary, toast on medium-high, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface.
