Artisan Bun(ContainsSoy/Soja, Wheat/Blé)
Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Strip 1 tbsp rosemary leaves (dbl for 4 ppl) from stems, then roughly chop. Cut potatoes into 1/4-inch matchstick fries. Add potatoes, rosemary and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, use 2 baking sheets, with 1 tbsp oil per sheet.) Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until golden-brown, 25-28 min. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, use 2 baking sheets, with 1 tbsp oil per sheet. Bake in the middle and bottom of the oven, rotating sheets halfway)
While potatoes roast, core, then thinly slice pear. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then pear slices. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 3-4 min. Add 1 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl) and season with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until dark golden-brown, 3-4 min. Transfer pears to a plate. Set aside.
While the pears cook, combine beef with panko, pureed garlic, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (dbl both for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. (TIP: If you prefer a firmer patty, add an egg to the mixture! For 4 ppl, add two eggs.) Form into four 4-inch wide patties for 2 ppl (eight patties for 4 ppl). Lightly press a thumbprint into each patty.
Carefully wipe the same pan (from step 2) clean. Heat over medium-high. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then patties. Pan-fry until cooked through, 4-5 min per side. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan. Pan-fry patties in batches, if needed!)
While patties cook, halve buns and arrange on another baking sheet, cut-side up. Sprinkle goat cheese over bottom buns. Toast in the top of the oven, until cheese melts and top buns are golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on your buns so they don't burn!)
Stir together mayo and Dijon in a small bowl. Spread Dijon-mayo on toasted top buns. Divide patties between bottom buns. Top with caramelized pears and baby spinach. Serve fries alongside.
