Ingredients

2
pounds
russet potatoes (about 4), cut into 1/2-inch-thick sticks
1
tablespoon
barbecue spice rub or chili powder
2
tablespoons
plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
1/3
cup
mayonnaise
2
tablespoons
pickle relish
1
tablespoon
ketchup
1
pound
ground beef chuck
kosher salt and black pepper
4
whole-wheat hamburger buns, split
lettuce, sliced tomato, and sliced red onion, for serving

Directions

  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.
