    The All American Burger and Fries

    A day well spent,

    a morning annoying our children, spend lunch cleaning an old black powder muzzleloader that I inherited and then helping cooking an awesome dinner for the family.


    The Menu
    Loaded Bacon Cheeseburgers and Homemade Fries


    The Fries
    Scrub down several large baking potatoes
    Julienne into 1/4"-1/2" fries
    Deep fry at 375 till just golden, lift basket, let oil reheat and then finish to crisp
    Salt/season well while still dripping oil
    Serve HOT!

    Loaded Bacon Cheeseburgers
    5lbs of prime 80/20 Chuck divided eight ways, .62lb patties
    Lightly handled into patties and nicely seasoned with Cajun spice, black pepper and salt
    Grilled over high heat for a nice sear
    Add cheese and get a nice melt


    My tips for great burgers

    Do not over handle the meat and do not mix spices into it
    Season the unformed chunk of chuck and then gently form the patty
    Leave them thick and form a deep divot in the center, I use my thumb, this divot keeps them from shrinking up
    Sear them well, this is beef, I cook to medium-medium well

    You're not only an outstanding cook, you are a great food photographer, too.

    Looks great man... I learned the hole in the middle trick by a guest at the hunting camp several years ago cooking deer burgers. No matter how flat you make the patty's they will recede and get thick, but if you give it a doughnut hole the meat won't swell up.

    Alton Brown bakes his potatoes the day before, then he slices them and fries them. Just sayin'.
