what you need
  • Hot Mess spread:
  • 8 to 12 ounces chopped bacon
  • 8 to 12 ounces chopped dill pickles
  • 8 to 12 ounces chopped red onion
  • 1 to 2 fresh jalapenos, chopped (seeds included)
  • 12 to 16 ounces Thousand Island dressing
  • Sandwich:
  • 8 to 12 ounces sweet potato French fries
  • 2 pounds Certified Angus Beef (80/20) ground chuck
  • 4 deli rolls
  • 4 to 8 slices American cheese, depends on how cheesy you like it
  • Butter
  • 1/2 head of iceberg, shredded
  • 16 ounces Thousand Island dressing
make it
In medium to large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the hot mess spread.

Fry sweet potato fries in canola oil. (Use a fryer if available or a pan with enough room to submerge the French fries)

Cook 4 8-ounce burgers to your specific liking. (I prefer medium) on a flat griddle or grill.

At 350°F-400°F, add 2 slices of American cheese to each burger. Butter and toast the buns face down on the grill or in a separate frying pan.

Put the burgers on the buns and then layer with the:
1. Hot mess spread (spoon on and spread out the mix generously)
2. Add shredded lettuce on top of the spread
3. Place about 5-6 sweet potato French fries over the lettuce
4. 2-4 oz. Thousand Island dressing over the top of the fries on each burger.

Serve open-faced with some chips on the side if desired
