Glazed Burger & Sweet Potato Fries

I found this recipe for a glazed burger in a wonderful cookbook my sister got me, Everybody Everyday by Alex Mackay. You can serve the burger with or without a bun. I made it with homemade sweet potato fries on the side.

Serves 2

8 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp barbecue sauce
4 tsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil to taste
2 ground beef patties
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 medium sweet potatoes


 Cut the sweet potatoes into small pieces, similar to fries. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Toss sweet potato pieces in olive oil and salt and pepper.
 Arrange on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper so that the pieces are all flat on the sheet, and not on top of one another.
 Bake for 10 minutes, then flip and bake for another 10 min.
Meanwhile, season the patties on each side. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet. Place burgers in oil.
 Fry burgers in oil over high heat for 3 minutes on each side. Drain the fat from the skillet.
 Add butter to the pan. Fry burgers on each side over medium heat for 30 seconds each. Set burgers aside to rest for a few minutes.
 In the same skillet, add the red onion and heat until browned.
 At this point the fries should be done, and be browned. Take out and set aside.
 To finish the glaze: add 8 tbsp of orange juice to the red onions. Bring to a boil. Stir in barbecue sauce. Stir and heat until thick. Put the burgers in the glaze and turn to coat.
Serve with extra glaze poured on top and a side of sweet potato fries.

From one newbie to another, enjoy!
