On the Fourth of July, there’s no better snack than a classic American burger and fries. In what follows, you’ll find a somewhat untraditional take on the favorite pairing.

For the burger:
Prepare your ketchup by mixing all ingredients and setting it aside. Turn your grill up to medium-high and, in a bowl, mix up your cheddar and onions. Separately, thoroughly combine your ground beef, pepper, salt, garlic, oregano, cumin and egg and make 4 large balls. Flatten them into patties and put 1 tablespoon of onion and cheddar in the middle. Then fold the patties over the onion mixture, securing it inside the burger. Flatten once again and grill for 5 to 6 minutes, flipping only once. Toast your buns on the grill too. Place the burger on the bun and serve with your Adobo ketchup.
In your thick-bottomed pot or deep fryer, heat your vegetable oil to 350 F. Separately, whisk together your maple syrup, black pepper, salt and curry. Clean your potatoes, halve and cut into wedges. Once the oil heats up, lower the heat and put your wedges in. Cook until brown, which should take about 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and sprinkle with your spice mixture. Plate the wedges and garnish with green onions.
