Notes
Sweet Potato Fries will not be as crunchy as a regular french fry. The hamburgers can also be cooked on an outdoor grill. *Price estimate does not include pantry staples you may likely already have. Prices are also adjusted for quantity; for example if a recipe calls for half an onion, we include the cost of that quantity.* Recipe Created for Sweetbay Supermarket by Leslie Green – The Hungry Housewife.
