For the Burger:
In large mixing bowl add ground beef, salt and meat magic and mix as gently as possible without compacting the meat. Form into 6 equal burgers and shape to fit roll. Refrigerate till needed.

For cheese crisps
Place non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat and let get hot. Divide cheese into 6 equal portions and with your hand sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese in pan in a circle smaller than bun about 1/8 inch thick and let cheese melt. When cheese is slightly browned, carefully flip over crisp and brown other side about 2-3 minutes per side. Slide onto flat paper towels and let cool and harden.

For the Crab Cakes:
In a sauté pan, over medium heat, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions. Season the vegetables with salt. Sauté for 2 minutes Add the green onions and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute. Remove the mixture from the heat and place into a mixing bowl. Cool completely add crabmeat, egg, 1/2 of the bread crumbs and ½ cup cheese and mix well. Set aside. Form the mixture into 6 individual cakes, about 3/4-inch thick. Dredge the cakes in the flour. Dip each cake in the egg wash, letting the excess drip off. Dredge the cakes in the remaining bread crumbs, coating completely. In a large sauté pan, over medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, pan-fry the cakes until golden about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove and drain on paper towels. Keep warm.

For Sweet potato chips
Heat oil over medium-high heat, when hot place slices of sweet potatoes in oil do not over crowd and fry on both sides till crisp, about 1.5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with sea salt.
