We’ve eaten burgers made from black beans, lentils and even cauliflower, but sometimes the real deal is what you need. Lauren Gallucci and Claire Thomas—owners of L.A. bakery Sweet Laurel and authors of Sweet Laurel Savory—know what we mean, so we’re making their recipe for the ultimate Sweet Laurel burger with sweet potato fries.
“Los Angeles is a burger town,” they write. “You can hardly go a few blocks without bumping into a classic burger spot. Our favorite is the one served at the Apple Pan, a diner where they haven’t changed any recipes since 1949. The classic ‘L.A. burger’ is a crispy-edged masterpiece with rich, savory flavors, which is exactly what inspired this version.”
You can make these burgers with almost any ground meat, but go for something fatty instead of lean. It’ll ensure a juicy result and add tons of flavor.
