Jalapeno Burgers, Round Fries, Celery Sticks

1 lb ground beef
1/4 c bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 T minced onion
1/8 t cayenne pepper
pinch of dried oregano
1 t soy sauce
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 (4 oz) can jalapenos (add more if you want spicier burgers)*

4-6 buns
4-6 slices of cheese

burger toppings, such as:
onion slices
lettuce leaves
tomato slices

1 large potato, cut into thin circles
steak seasoning or salt and pepper

celery sticks
salad dressing

Put all burger ingredients in a bowl (first 9 ingredients). Mix well with your hands. Divide the meat mixture and form 4-6 patties. Grill or broil until cooked through. Immediately place cheese slices on the burgers and allow to melt. Assemble burgers with desired toppings.

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place potato slices in a single layer. Spray with more cooking spray. Season with steak seasoning or salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until desired crispiness.

*I added just over half a can of jalapenos, and BOY! these were nice and spicy. Obviously, we didn't feed these burgers to our toddler, and they might have been just a tad too spicy for me. The best bet is to start with a small amount of jalapeno, then just cook up a miniature patty (on your grill or in a frying pan). If you think you need more heat, go ahead and add more peppers!
