Cheesy French Fry Bourbon Burgers

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Serving Size: 4



1 1/4 pounds fresh ground beef
4 slices smoked cheddar cheese
Oven Baked French Fries
3 pounds unpeeled russet potatoes, cut into wedges or strips
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teasponn pepper
Sweet Bourbon Sauce
3/4 cup bourbon
1 cup cold water, divided
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons of your favorite BBQ Sauce
1 1/2 teasspoons tabasco
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced or grated


  1. Make the Fries: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Place cut potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle with oil, seasoned salt and pepper. Gently toss with your hands or two spatulas to evenly coat. Spread on a baking sheet in one layer. Roast for 25-30 minutes, then flip and roast for 25-30 minutes more. This may take longer depending on how thick you cut your potatoes. You want the potatoes to be deeply golden and crispy on the outside!
  3. While the fries cook make the sauce. In a bowl, mix the cornstarch with 1/4 cup of water until smooth. Add the cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. In a medium sauce pan over low heat, combine the bourbon, 3/4 cup water, soy sauce, honey, BBQ Sauce Tabasco, brown sugar, dijon and garlic. Bring up the heat to a simmer and slowly add the corn starch mixture, whisking vigorously as you go. When the mixture is well combined, cook about 1 more minute. Turn off the heat and set aside until ready to use. The sauce can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to serve.
  4. Preheat a grill or griddle over medium-high heat.
  5. Make the burgers: Form the meat into 4 patties. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Grill the burgers for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium rare or longer if you prefer. Add a handful of the fries on top of the burger and place a slice of cheese right on top of the fries. Let the cheese melt and then serve the burgers on toasted buns and drizzle with a generous amount of the sweet bourbon sauce.
