Recipe by Saira Malhotra

Powerful in name and taste, La Mitraillette (Belgian Machine Gun) Sandwich is one fully loaded burger topped with ketchup, caramelized onions and…French fries? Clearly this is something that hails from Belgium.

This recipe for La Mitraillette comes from Petit Abeille, the Yves Jadot-owned Belgian cafés in New York, and home to American classics with a decidedly French and Belgian twist such as Croque Monsieur (Belgian ham and cheese sandwich with béchamel) and Vol au Vent (chicken pot pie). And now La Mitraillette.
