  • vegetable oil, for frying the pasta
  • 5 -7 pieces thin spaghetti or angel hair pasta
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 ounce mashed potato*
  • 1 brioche hamburger bun
  • two 8-ounce ground beef patties
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked**
  • 1 lettuce leaf
  • 1 slice tomato
  • 1 slice red onion
  • 2 long slices pickle
  • 1/2 ounce your favorite barbecue sauce
  1. Fill a deep-fryer to the fill line, or fill a steep-sided pan large enough to accommodate the pasta in a single layer 1/3 full with oil. Heat the oil to 350 degrees. Fry the pasta until dark brown, about 6 minutes.
  2. On a griddle or in a cast-iron skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the mashed potato and cook until dark golden brown, about 5 minutes. Flip and remove from the heat.
  3. Place the brioche bun on a griddle or cast-iron skillet to warm and flip. Place 2 patties on the griddle or skillet, season with salt and pepper to taste, and cook to the desired level of doneness (the USDA recommends an internal temperature of 160 degrees).
  4. Place the griddled mash crispy side up and bacon on one patty and place the second patty on top. Place on the heel of the bun and add the crown. Serve with the lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickle on the side. Drizzle the barbecue sauce around the rim of the plate and lean the fried pasta on top of the burger.
