While various adaptations of this classic duo exists, this version relies on a few smart cooking techniques for superior flavor, texture, and satisfaction. Both recipes are definitely worth the time it takes to make them! Here, finely chopped onion and egg whites mixed into the beef make the burgers super juicy. The fries get their crispy, golden exterior and tender interior, by either boiling, steaming or microwaving the potatoes first, then spreading them into a single layer on a large pan and baked at a high temperature. Do not to crowd the potatoes in the pan or otherwise, they’ll end up being soggy.
