This may not be the prettiest burger (especially when plopped atop a “bed” of sweet potato “fries”), but it sure is the yummiest burger we’ve ever made.
(Adapted from Eating Well)
12 oz. lean ground grass-fed beef
½ cup dried cherries, finely chopped
½ cup breadcrumbs of your choosing (see step 1 of this recipe for instruction on making your own)
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1. Preheat grill, broiler or skillet.
2. Combine beef, cherries, breadcrumbs, garlic, vinegar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl.
3. Form into patties.
4. Grill or broil until center registers 160° (5-6 minutes per side on a grill, 3-4 minutes per side under the broiler).
*To make oven-baked sweet potato fries, follow our recipe for regular fries (using sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes, obviously). Sprinkle with brown sugar.
