Dry Rub Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries

All I Can Say is - YUM. 

Dry Rub Burgers

PREP: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 - 40 minutes
Total: 50 - 55 minutes


1 ½ tbsp chili powder
2 ½ tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ tsp ground white pepper
2 1/2 lbs grass fed ground beef (makes about 7-9 medium sized burgers)
sea salt to taste (optional)

Mix all dry rub ingredients together

Form hamburger meat into patties and cover both sides generously with the dry rub

Let the burgers sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes before cooking

Either grill or pan fry about 4 minutes each side for medium, less for rare, more for well

Sprinkle the sea salt on after burgers are cooked (optional)

We added a couple eggs to our burgers along with some avocado (DELICIOUS!)

Sweet Potato Fries

PREP: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 - 40 minutes
Total: 50 - 55 minutes


2-3 yams
3-4 egg whites
garlic powder
ground black pepper
sea salt
olive oil
aluminum foil

Slice sweet potatoes (we did spears but you can do discs if you want)

Separate eggs and add seasonings (as much seasoning as you would like)  

Dip each sweet potato into the egg mixture and lay flat on a aluminum foil lined cookie sheet

Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle on more seasoning – this is key – and then sprinkle on a little sea salt.  

Bake at 350 for 30 - 40 minutes

For more crispy fries, turn the broiler on for about a minute


All the best --

  1. So these were awesome. We used the seasoned grease that was left in the pan from the burgers to fry the eggs with. It gave the whites a crispy texture with some added flavor. The ham added a little salty and the avocado cut the heat when you needed it to.
