  1. Check 2pounds russet potatoes (about 4), cut into 1/2-inch-thick sticks
  2. Check 1tablespoon barbecue spice rub or chili powder

  4. Check 1/3cup mayonnaise

  8. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  9. Check 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split

  1. Heat oven to 425° F. Dividing evenly, on 2 rimmed baking sheets, toss the potatoes with the barbecue spice rub and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Roast, tossing once, until browned and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, relish, and ketchup.
  3. Form the beef into 4 patties and place each between 2 sheets of wax paper; press to a ½-inch thickness. Heat the remaining teaspoon of oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season the burgers with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook to the desired doneness, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  4. Form sandwiches with the buns, burgers, mayonnaise sauce, lettuce, tomato, and onion. Serve with the fries.
