Burgers and Fries
When it's burger and fries night at your house, steer away from the drive-through and head home. In five minutes the fries can be ready for the oven, where they'll crisp without any complicated frying. While they bake, make the burgers.

Grill according to directions, and top with the cheese slices during the last minute of grilling.
