Mini Burgers & Fries

Our kids love these mini burgers. For some reason, eating something tiny just seems more fun and yummy. I buy the rolls at Shirley's Bakery.

ground beef
salt & pepper
Lawry's Seasoning Salt
cheddar or jack cheese, sliced
dinner rolls
russet potatoes
canola oil (for frying)

Form hamburger into small patties. Season with salt, pepper and seasoning salt. Grill on the BBQ. Place a cheese slice on patties and allow to melt while still on the grill. Serve with your favorite condiments. We like to caramelize an onion by slicing it up and frying the slices in 2 T butter and 1 T olive oil until softened and golden brown.

For Fries:
Cut potatoes into strips and soak in cold ice water for about 15 minutes. Remove from the cold water and dry on paper towels. Heat grease to about 350 - 375 degrees in either a pot or a deep fryer. Fry potatoes until golden brown.

For Fry Sauce:
Pink Sauce: Mix equal parts ketchup and mayo
White Sauce: Mix equal parts buttermilk and mayo
