Fried Onion Cheeseburgers
Ready in: 5 minutes
4 Nathan’s Famous® hamburger buns
¾ pound 80/20 ground beef
1 large yellow onion, very thinly sliced
4 slices American cheese
Thinly sliced dill pickle chips
Salt and pepper
(optional) Olive oil
Form the ground beef into 4 equal meatballs.
Using a large sauté pan or griddle over medium high heat, add the meatballs with a pinch of salt and pepper. (optional- add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan or griddle before adding the ground beef if desired) Add thinly sliced onions over the top of each burger and using a flat spatula, smash the burger as flat as possible. (The thinner the better)
Cook the burgers for 2 minutes and then flip and cook another 1-2 minutes. (The onions will caramelize and steam the burger from the bottom)
Add a slice of cheese to each and cover to melt.
To plate, add a bit of mustard and a few pickle slices to the bottom bun, place the burger over the top and then add the top bun. Serve immediately.
