Oven Baked Fries and Stuffed Buffalo Burgers

This entire meal was my husband’s idea, which I loved. All I had to do was prep. Although I don’t eat much meat, I do really enjoy buffalo. My hubby makes a mean buffalo burger, which is a good alternative to beef and a nice change from turkey from time to time. This all came out very well and it’s nice to know how to do fries. Especially when I can just do prep and watch him make it! The original fries recipe can be found here.

Oven Baked Fries modified from and Stuffed Buffalo Burgers:

Makes 2 large servings

About 2 small heads of garlic plus a few cloves, minced, for both the fries and burgers.

2 large baking potatoes, cut into thin strips
1 Tb. olive oil
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. paprika
Freshly ground pepper, to taste

2/3 lb. ground buffalo
½ - 2/3 c. finely shredded cheddar cheese (or cheese of choice)
¼ of a medium yellow or white onion, chopped
1 Tb. steak and chop spice mix (Trader Joe’s makes an excellent one or your choice of spices)

Heat oven to 450 degrees.

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine all dry ingredients with potatoes in a medium size bowl and toss to coat. Add olive oil and ½ of the minces garlic, tossing again to coat. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on baking sheet and for about 35 minutes or until golden brown.

For the burgers, mix the buffalo, the next three ingredients and the rest of the garlic together in a small bowl. Form into two patties. You can do this while the fries are baking. About 10 minutes before they are done, heat up olive oil in a medium saucepan. Place burgers in when the oil is hot. Cook for about 5 minutes per side, until browned and cooked through.

Garnish burgers and serve with fries. The fries taste awesome on their own, but do go well with ketchup and other traditional fry sauces.
