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.
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.
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.
Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for jam over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook to desired doneness, 3-6 minutes per side.
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.
