Method of Preparation

For the Fries

  1. Soak the potato strips in cold water for 30 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 175°C (350°F). Fry potatoes in batches until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and season with salt.

For the Cheeseburger

  1. Divide the ground beef into four equal portions and form into patties.
  2. Heat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties for 4 minutes on each side or until the desired doneness is reached.
  3. Top each patty with a cheese slice and let melt.
  4. Toast the hamburger buns lightly.
  5. Assemble the burgers by placing lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles on the bottom bun, followed by the beef patty, and then ketchup and mustard. Top with the other half of the bun.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • For juicier burgers, avoid pressing down on the patties while cooking.
  • Customize your burger with additional toppings like bacon, avocado, or your favorite sauce.
  • For extra crispy fries, fry them twice. First at a lower temperature to cook through, then increase the heat to crisp them up.


Can I make this recipe with a different type of cheese?

Absolutely! Feel free to use your preferred cheese, such as Swiss, mozzarella, or blue cheese.

How do I ensure my fries are crispy?

Make sure to dry the potato strips thoroughly after soaking and fry them until they are golden brown.

Can I cook the burgers on a stovetop?

Yes, you can use a skillet or a grill pan on the stove if you don’t have access to a grill.
