Buffalo-blue curly cheese fry and crispy black bean burgers

These are for all the vegetarians who still want to have fun and throw a delicious summer BBQ. Now – they are sort of healthy, but then I just had to add the cheese sauce. Oh the cheese sauce. This cheese sauce is worth the splurge. It’s kind of my new favorite burger topping. As are these crispy, baked to perfection, homemade curly fries. Holy crap. You guys. So flippin good. The curly fries alone are reason enough to buy yourself a vegetable spiralizer.

These fries were deemed “best ever” by some seriously tough critics, so you have to trust me on this one.

For some reason I really liked the idea of these burgers being heavy on the black beans… and blue cheese. Oops. No, no, no – the healthy stuff totally cancels out any of the bad stuff. It does. Really!
