The caramelized onions on these burgers add a burst of flavor and comfort that is great for these cold days. They are quite easy to make and really, really good. You will need:
1 pound ground beef
4 slices cheese – I used lite Munster cheese
1/2 of a large sweet onion, sliced
Salt & Pepper
4 rolls – I used the new 100 calorie sandwich rolls from Orowheat to save some calories
Condiments – optional – we ate them as is
Pour about 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes – until nicely browned and caramelized. Set aside.
Place the beef in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Divide the beef in four equal pieces and make 4 patties.
Heat a large skillet with some more olive oil. Add the burgers and cook for about 5 minutes, until the bottom is browned. Flip the patty and cook for an additional 5 to 7 minutes – until meat is cooker through. top the patty with some caramelized onion and cover with the sliced cheese. Cook for a couple of minutes until the cheese melts.
Serve the burgers on a roll with extra onions on top. Enjoy!
