Cheeseburger Loaded Fries taste just like a classic burger but with a salty, carb-ey twist! These crispy, cheesy, and meaty fries are easy to make and fun to devour! Each bite is bursting with flavor, making for a delicious snack or full meal.
In a large bowl, combine the beef, cheddar, mustard, salt and onion powder and mix until well combined. Gently form the meat mixture into 2 equal patties and flatten each one slightly to about a 1/3 inch thickness. Use your finger to press down into the center of each patty to create a dimple, which will prevent too much shrinking.
For the Special Sauce
In a medium bowl, stir all of the ingredients until smooth.
Arrange the burgers in the air fryer basket and cook at 400 F to medium doneness, about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Place on a sheet pan, cover with foil, and transfer to the oven to keep warm.
For the Fries
Wash and dry the potatoes. Cut into lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices; then cut each slice into 1/4-inch thick fries. (A mandoline is helpful here).
In a bowl, toss the potatoes with the olive oil. Season with the salt, garlic powder, and black pepper to taste and toss to coat.
Working in 2 batches, spirtz the air fryer basket with oil. Add half of the potatoes to the basket in an even layer, without overlapping or crowding. Cook at 380 F until the potatoes are golden and crisp, 12 to 14 minutes, flipping halfway through.
To serve, divide the potatoes between two plates. Chop the burger patties into small bite-size pieces and scatter on top of the fries. Drizzle everything with the special sauce, top with the lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pickles. Serve immediately.
We also tried this recipe with ground turkey and that was also a great sub.
