From the Test Kitchen

To give these smoky burgers a deliciously rich, rustic twist, beef patties are topped with layers of barbecue mayo, tangy pickles, and crispy fried onions. To round out the hearty dish, we’re serving a side of roasted sweet potato wedges with a homemade sour cream and onion-style dipper, which highlights aromatic scallions and garlic.
