Spring is starting to appear and we were looking to break out the BBQ and have some good grilled hamburgers with some sweet potato fries. However not wanting to ignore the cuisine of where we are living now we decided to meld the good old American cheeseburger with Steak Frites, voilà un bistro burger et frites de patate douce. I do not know if that is the correct translation for sweet potato fries, but it sounded good when I checked it out on Google translate.
The mixture of bacon and beef makes for a very juicy and tasty hamburger with a slice of any type of melting cheese to coat the meat. Jo Ann had the idea of using the béarnaise sauce which added a great flavor to the burger.
It was a great meal to imitate the BBQ this spring and I hope the weather will continue to provide us with the warmer temperatures.
We grind our own meat for our hamburgers using a mixture of 80% beef and 20% bacon.
The sweet potatoes are sliced and ready to be oven baked to create our frites.
