Roast Potatoes and Prep
Roast Potatoes and Prep

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Cut sweet potatoes into ½-inch-thick wedges. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, pepper, and half the Fry Seasoning. Wrap garlic in aluminum foil, sealing to make a pouch; place on baking sheet. Roast, flipping potatoes halfway through, until tender and garlic is soft, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Dice tomato.

Make Jam
Make Jam

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in tomato, 1 tsp sugar, and 1 TBSP vinegar (2 TBSP for 4 servings—you’ll have some left over). Cook, stirring, until soft and jammy, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat; remove jam from pan and set aside. Wipe out pan.

Shape Patties
Shape Patties

In a medium bowl, combine beef and remaining Fry Seasoning. Divide beef in half and flatten each piece into a wide, roughly ½-inch-thick circle. Divide cheddar between the centers of each circle. Fold edges of meat around cheddar, shaping and sealing to create cheese-stuffed patties. Season all over with salt and pepper.

While patties cook, halve buns and place on a second baking sheet. Toast in oven or toaster oven until golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Once garlic is roasted, remove from foil and mash with a fork until smooth. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and roasted garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

Spread buns with ketchup and a thin layer of sauce. Divide patties between buns and top with tomato onion jam. Divide burgers and sweet potatoes between plates. Serve with remaining sauce on the side for dipping.
