Recipe

Sometimes nothing beats a good, juicy, delicious cheeseburger. My favorite way to enjoy these is to make a simple burger at home and top it with lots of caramelized red onions. Then a little cheese, a little ketchup, some mustard, lettuce, and tomato and I am a happy camper.

  2. Option 1: Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Sprinkle the onions with salt and pepper. Place on a piece of foil and add 2 tbsp. of water. Close up the foil to create a packet. Place directly on grill. Cook for 10-12 minutes total, flipping once. Place the burgers on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until desired doneness. During last 2 minutes of cooking, add the cheese.
  3. Option 2: Heat a pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add the onions, salt, pepper. and water. Cook on medium low heat, adding water as needed until onions brown and become very tender. Remove onions and set aside. Spray with cooking spray and add the burgers. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side. During the last two minutes, add the cheese and cover or tent the pan so that the cheese melts.
