Homemade cheese burger and sweet potato fries? Buckle up
Take this modern classic into the heart of your kitchen and come out winning
Us Brits still consider the delicious combination of a juicy American cheese burger served with crisp and salty sweet potato fries as rather exotic. It's a dish best left in the hands of a chef who knows how to handle a patty (that's the meat part) and enjoyed in a restaurant as a treat. Wrong!
Much to the distaste of the French, folks in the United States have been cutting sweet potatoes into thin orange hued strips and frying them up since the nineteenth century. Whoever decided to team them with a classic cheese burger in a saucy bun, is a mystery to us, but a genius nonetheless.
Now winter is upon us and barbecues are a distance memory (much like hugging and mosh pits, but, alas, we digress) you will be pleased to know that recreating this scrumptious meal at home is easier than you think and much healthier too. How, you ask? We are here to tell you!
The bods at Tefal have come up with the Tefal ActiFry Genius XL 2in1 air fryer, which is basically the only cooking appliance you need to pull off a healthy burger and sweet potato fries recipe-of-dreams (99% less added fat*) and with all the tricky timings taken care of. Win win. Not only that, but because the ActiFry has a paddle which stirs your food for you as well as two separate cooking zones, you can make both parts of the recipe in one without needing to lift a finger.
