Simple bit delicious burgers! We made ours into sliders with little Hawaiian rolls. The onions make this dish!

Loved this. Simple, quick, full of flavor. We always eat our burgers like this, normally without the onions (but from here on out, WITH the onions :D) Added a little garlic powder to the patties...

Great burger. Simple and delicious. Added some hamburger seasoning to the patties. We added some cheese to it.

Simple enough to really enjoy the taste of the beef patties and grilled onions-love this!

This is a basic burger recipe. I enjoyed it, but may add some bacon next time, b/c who doesn't love bacon, right?!
