There’s no such thing as the absolute perfect burger, but this one from the team at Food Steez comes pretty damn close. Not just a cheeseburger, this insanely delicious patty—prepared with a combination of buffalo cheese sauce, avocado, butter lettuce and curly fries—is the stuff of a burger-lover’s fantasy.
2 pounds unpeeled russet potatoes 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 teaspoons seasoned salt 1 teaspoon pepper
½ lb. ground beef ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese brioche hamburger buns 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper sliced avocado, crumbled blue cheese, butter lettuce
Buffalo Cheese Sauce
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter ¼ cup all-purpose flour 1 ¼ cups milk 3 ounces cream cheese 8 ounces freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese 1/3-½ cup Franks red hot sauce 1 teaspoon seasoned salt ½ teaspoon pepper
Stuff the blue cheese into the center of each ball and form the mixture around the blue cheese to make round patties. Cover and place in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Using a vegetable spiralizer, spiralize the potatoes into curly cut fries. Then cut the fries into smaller sections. Place the potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle with oil, seasoned salt and pepper. Toss and then spread onto two baking sheets in one layer. Roast for 10-15 minutes. This may take longer depending on how thick your potatoes are spiralized or cut. You want the potatoes to be deeply golden and crispy on the outside!
About 15 minutes before the fries are done, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Grab the burgers and cook until medium, about five minutes per side.
To make the buffalo cheese sauce heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter, and once it’s melted and bubbly add the flour. Whisk together to create a roux and cook for 1-2 minutes until mixture gets a bit golden in color. Add milk, stir and turn down heat to low. Continue stirring until milk thickens. Add in the cheddar cheese and continue to stir until mixture is smooth. Stir in hot sauce and seasoned salt and pepper.
To assemble the burgers, place buttered lettuce on toasted burger bun bottom and then add the burger. Add a few avocado slices and then a handful of fries. Spoon the cheese sauce over the fries and sprinkle with blue cheese. Top with the burger bun and enjoy!
