  • 1 lb potatoes, peeled, cut into sticks
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
  • 1 cup loosely packed shredded lettuce
  • 6 grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard


  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    Place potatoes in bowl of cold water; let stand about 5 minutes to rinse some of the starch off. Drain; dry potatoes well with paper towels. Wipe bowl dry with paper towels. Return potatoes to bowl; toss with canola oil and dash salt. Spread potatoes on cookie sheet in even layer.
  • 3
    Bake about 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown on bottom. Remove from oven.

    Meanwhile, mix beef, onion powder, garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, the pepper and Worcestershire sauce. In heated 12-inch skillet, cook beef, crumbling with spoon in large chunks, until beef is seared and thoroughly cooked. With slotted spoon, remove beef from skillet to paper towel-lined plate, leaving drippings in skillet.

    Once potatoes are baked, set oven control to broil. In large cast iron or ovenproof skillet, layer half each of the potatoes, beef and cheese. Repeat with remaining potatoes, beef and cheese.

    Place skillet under preheated broiler; broil 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from broiler. Top with lettuce, tomatoes and onion. Serve with ketchup and mustard.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Rinsing the potatoes with cold water will remove some of the starch and drying them well will ensure crispy oven fries.
  • tip 2
    Use any garnish that you like on your cheeseburger. Some good additions might be pickled jalapeño chiles, dill pickles or crumbled cooked bacon.
