This burger that stacks up against the best, literally: each bun holds a beef patty that’s been smothered in melted pepper jack cheese AND sautéed peppers and onions. Just in case that doesn’t make this burger a front-runner for first-place, let’s introduce the secret weapon: a special spicy ketchup with hot sauce that you can add to taste. If you aren’t blown away yet, you will be when you’re holding this bad boy in your hands.

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Cut sweet potatoes into ½-inch-thick wedges. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Core, deseed, and thinly slice green pepper. In a small bowl, combine ketchup and hot sauce to taste.

Toss sweet potatoes on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of oil, salt, pepper, and half the BBQ Seasoning. Roast on top rack, flipping halfway through, until browned and tender, 20- 25 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine beef, remaining BBQ Seasoning, and a big pinch of salt and pepper. Divide mixture in half (divide into quarters for 4 servings). Flatten each piece into a wide, roughly ½-inch-thick circle. Set aside half the pepper jack. Divide remaining cheese between the center of each circle. Fold edges of meat around cheese, shaping and sealing to create cheese-stuffed patties. Season all over with salt and pepper.

Heat a large drizzle of oil in pan used for veggies over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook to desired doneness, 3-5 minutes per side. Top each patty with a layer of veggies (you may have extra), then top with reserved pepper jack. Cover pan until cheese melts, 1-2 minutes.
