8 red potatoes, cut into 4 wedges each
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 medium-size white onion, sliced
2 (15-oz.) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 chicken bouillon cube
6 (1-oz.) Swiss cheese slices
Chopped fresh basil (optional)

Preparation

Hands-on: 25 Minutes
Total: 45 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to 425°. Toss together potatoes, oil, and 1/2 tsp. salt in a bowl. Spread potatoes in a single layer in a jelly-roll pan, and bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden and tender.

2. Meanwhile, stir together sirloin, egg, pepper, and remaining 1 tsp. salt in a large bowl. Shape into 6 (3 1/2-inch) patties.

3. Cook patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove patties, reserving drippings. Sauté onion in hot drippings 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, bouillon, and 1/2 cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes or until bubbly.

4. Return patties to skillet; spoon tomato mixture over patties. Cover and cook 15 minutes; uncover and cook 5 minutes. Place 1 cheese slice on each patty. Cover and cook 3 minutes. Sprinkle with basil, if desired. Serve with potatoes.
