Burgers and Fries

     I mentioned in my last post that I'm catching up on posting. The heat has drained all my energy, and I have a file of "to-post" pictures.  We are on day 16 of 90* or higher temperatures....most of those days the heat index has been over 100! I'm not complaining though; I remember the winter and don't want that anytime soon (or ever!).
     This burger was so good! My husband was surprised that it was almost as good as our favorite burger joint here in town. I think the most surprising part of this being so good is that it has oatmeal and spinach mixed in! Anything to get vegetables in tummies at this house! Seriously, don't be turned off by that. It is so good, and you won't regret trying it.
     The second recipe is for oven fries that we served with our burgers. I'm still trying to get grilled fries to work, but that hasn't happened yet. I'll let you know when I do.

  • Whisk the egg. Add everything else and mix. 
  • Form into 4 patties
  • Place on grill over medium-high heat, and cook 4-6 minutes per side. 
  • Top with your favorite burger toppings.

  • Preheat oven to 450*. Coat a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Dip cut potatoes in the egg and place in a bowl. 
  • Mix remaining ingredients and sprinkle over the potatoes. Toss to coat. 
  • Place potatoes in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Turn potatoes over and bake for 15 more minutes or until crisp.
