Burgers en Latke (sans photo)- Passover Friendly

Ok, this recipe deems no fooling around.
It comes from Mr. Not Your Bubbe's Kitchen and it's good. It's real good.

How do you serve it (yes, I realize a photo speaks a thousand words, so I'll keep this succinct):
  • Place latke on plate.
  • Place burger over latke.
  • Serve with salad.

So let's get right to it.

For the burgers (makes 4 burgers):
20 ounces 93% lean ground beef
1 egg white
1-2 cloves crushed/minced garlic
About a tbsp of lower sodium Montreal steak seasoning

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, make 4 patties.
Grill 4-5 minutes each side, depending how rare or well done you like them!
Remember, if it's Passover, our kitchen stays kosher, so no meat and cheese in this recipe!!

For the Latkes (Makes 4 servings; 2 Latkes each)
4 large russet potatoes
2 eggs
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 yellow onion
3 tbsp matzo meal (unsalted)

Shred or grate the potatoes as well as the onions in a food processor. Add in the eggs. Then the seasoning. Now the matzo meal. Take mixture and place into a colander and let drain; or you just place the mixture inside a bowl lined with a paper towel. The bottom line? Drain the excess "juice" from the mixture.

Next, using less than 1 tbsp of oil (heck, try using cooking spray, let me know how it works for you), heat oil in pan. Make patties from mixture. Place patties in pan and cook about 3-4 minutes each side, until golden brown. Num Num Num.
