Pan-Fried Onion Cheeseburger

I make these burgers with caramelized onions and sharp Cheddar cheese. I serve them on brioche buns and eat them plain. Hubby likes to add lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, and more fresh onions! With or without all of the topping, they are delicious.

Yield:
3 onion burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef (80 percent lean)

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced

  • 3 slices sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 3 rolls brioche, split and toasted

Directions

  1. Place ground beef in a bowl and season with Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly and shape into 3 balls. Set aside.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet. Add onion and cook until onions start to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the skillet. Add 3 ground beef balls to the same skillet and flatten with a cast iron press or a heavy spatula. Evenly top each patty with onions and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more.

  3. Carefully flip patties over so that the onions are now on the bottom, pressing once again with cast iron press or heavy spatula. Top each with a slice of cheese and cook until cheese is melted and burgers have reached the desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve on brioche buns.

Cook's Note:

Any cheese can be used in place of the sharp Cheddar.
