Recipe of the Week: Blue Cheese Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries



  • 2 packages lean beef
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 TBS. parsley
  • 1 block blue cheese

Sweet Potato Fries

  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbs. Olive Oil
  • ½ cup Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. About an hour beforehand, place the sliced sweet potato fries into a large bowl and cover with water (this helps them get extra crispy). Once ready, preheat the oven to 375. In a large ziploc bag (you may need two with this large of a batch) add the fries (drain first) then add seasonings and olive oil. Shake until evenly coated. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 25-35 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fries) or until golden brown.
  2. In a food processor, combine all of the burger ingredients except for the blue cheese. Pulse together until well combined (if the mixture is dry and crumbly, add milk 1TBS. at a time). Using a large ice cream scoop (or your hands) form about 6 large patties. In the center of each one, use your thumb to make a little indentation and fill with 1 tsp. blue cheese. Cover the hole with the meat mixture. Once finished, add the patties to a skillet (or grill) heated over a medium-high heat. They should take about 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Serve with your choice of burger buns and top with lettuce, mustard and tomato and top with sweet potato fries.
