1 whole roasted potato with crispy skin (bake on the oven rack for 50 minutes), dredged in A.G. House Spice Mix (store bought steak seasoning is fine too)

Brush the inside of the potato with the melted butter and season with salt and pepper. Flip the potato over, brush the skin sides with butter, and season with salt and pepper. Place skin-side up on a baking sheet and broil until the butter foams and the skins start to crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the potato over and broil until the top edges just start to brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Place burger on top of open-face potato and garnish with cheese, bacon and crema nata. Top with second potato half
