Recipe: Burger with Double-Fried Chips (Fries)

Fathers Day Recipes - Juicy Burger and Double Fried Chips

The Ultimate Burger With Double-Fried Chips

Classic burgers and fries are an all time favorite among dads for Father’s day, but this is no run-of-the-mill burger and fries platter.  This super-juicy beef burger is topped with a yummy combination of spicy home-made tartare sauce, sliced beets and purple onion for an amazing taste-fest.  For a healthier, leaner version (gotta take care of Dad and the kids!) use ground chicken or turkey instead of beef – just as yummy and better for them.  The thick-cut potato fries are double-fried  and sprinkled with sea salt (a much healthier alternative to table salt). Use either coconut oil or peanut oil for the fries as a healthier oil choice for your family. The ultimate burger, this baby requires two hands to eat — but the best bit is licking your fingers at the end!  Get the recipe!
