Directions Step-By-Step

1
PREP/PREPARE
2
Gather your ingredients.
3
Chef’s Note: For presentation purposes, I try to make the potato, burger, all about the same size. In this case 1.5 inches (3.8cm).
4
Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 400f (205c).
5
Brush the potato rounds with olive oil, and season with salt & pepper.
6
Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
7
Bake in the oven until cooked through and starting to brown, about 20-25 minutes.
8
Remove from the oven and reserve.
9
Chef’s Note: Leave the potatoes on the baking sheet.
10
Divide the ground chuck into six patties, and sprinkle with a bit of salt & pepper, 1/2 ounce (14g) each.
11
Add the butter to a large sauté pan, over medium heat.
12
Swirl to coat the bottom of the pan, and then add the burgers.
13
Cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
14
Add a bit of horseradish sauce to the top of each one of the potato rounds.
15
Place the burgers on top of the potato rounds, and then top with a slice of cheese.
16
Put under the broiler, until the cheese melts and begins to bubble, about 1-2 minutes.
17
PLATE/PRESENT
18
Remove from the baking sheet, and place on a serving plate.

Add a pickle, cherry tomato, and then skewer with a toothpick or other device. Enjoy.
