Click for Tablet ViewPrepare & roast the potatoes:
1Prepare & roast the potatoes:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Large dice the potatoes. Place in a large bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. Transfer to the prepared sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 23 to 25 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
2Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the potatoes roast, cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Roughly chop the peppers. Combine in a large bowl. Thinly slice the cheese. Halve the buns.

Make the coleslaw:
3Make the coleslaw:

While the potatoes continue to roast, to the bowl of prepared cabbage and peppers, add the mayonnaise and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and stir to thoroughly coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Form & cook the patties:
4Form & cook the patties:

While the coleslaw marinates, place the pork in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and gently mix to combine. Using your hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Transfer to a plate. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and cook 5 to 6 minutes on the first side, or until browned. Flip the patties (carefully, as the oil may splatter) and cook 3 minutes. Top with the sliced cheese. Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the patties are cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. 

Toast the buns:
5Toast the buns:

In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Working in batches if necessary, add the buns, cut side down, and toast 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. 

Make the sauce & serve your dish:
6Make the sauce & serve your dish:

In a bowl, combine the barbecue sauce and honey (kneading the packet before opening). Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, sauce, cooked patties, and pickle chips. Serve the burgers with the roasted potatoes and coleslaw on the side. Enjoy!
