burgers and lemon potatoes on a tray with bowls of mixed greens and chopped veggies on a cutting board

Through these burgers and potatoes together on a whim and I could not get over how delish they were!! The burgers have so much flavor, and a ton of extra nutrients packed in. Plus, they pair perfectly with the lemony roasted potatoes- which get cooked to absolute perfection!

You can never go wrong with some burgers and fries. I love having this type of meal over a big bed of greens for extra veg. Splash it with some vinegar and olive oil for the best flavor combo with this dish! Trust me.

This is a super simple recipe, perfect for both weeknights and weekends. I honestly could eat this multiple times a week, every week! So good.

I love sneaking in extra veggies any way I can! One of my favorite ways is to toss in a bunch of fresh veggies and herbs to burgers. It makes for the most delicious and nutrient-dense meal!
