How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 450° F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the potatoes, 2 tablespoons of the oil, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Step 2

Roast, tossing once, until golden brown and tender, 22 to 25 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss the fennel, onion, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Set aside.

Step 4

Form the beef into four ½-inch-thick patties. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Heat the remaining teaspoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 5

Cook the patties for 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. During the last minute of cooking, top them with the cheese and cook, covered.

Step 6

Place the burgers on the buns with the fennel relish and arugula, if desired. Serve with the fries.
