Mozzarella-Stuffed Beef Burger with Caramelized Onions

IMG_4291


INGREDIENTS

ground beef
mozzarella cheese
garlic, minced
onions, minced
basil
salt and pepper
cheese slices
lettuce
onions, sliced
sugar
salt


 COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

for the burger:
1. Mix ground beef, garlic, onions, basil, salt and pepper. Form several patties and then put them aside
2. Cut thin slices of mozzarella cheese and then put them in between two patties
3. Refrigerate patties, for an hour or overnight
4. Grill burgers until thoroughly cooked. Grill the inside of the buns, then top it with a cheese slice, lettuce and a pattie

for the caramelized onions:
5. Heat oil then add onions and then let it sweat
6. Add salt and pepper because this speeds up the process of "carmelizing". You can also add some sugar, but do not worry because the onions will caramelize, well, even without it
7. Leave it to "caramelize" until it turns black or brown and then begins to stick on the pan
8. When it gets to that color, separate the onions from the pan and then toss it a little. Make sure not toss it during the initial caramelizing process.


As I've mention on my previous post, I have tried to make good use of my burger patties, and I made sure to make different types of burger toppings so that I do not have to feed my husband with the same thing. Also, I did not really enjoy the marinara sauce, too much, so I decided to make caramelized onions and it was a great idea. 

I loved it and Bon did too, and despite using about 6 large onions, the yield seemed rather small, so we began to think about the amount of onions restaurants must have to be able to make a lot of caramelized onions. The onions are sweet and soggy, so they made the burgers really tasty. Every bite was perfect and I think I had two burgers that day ---  Haha!

I always loved a local burger joint near ours that has cheese inside the patty and oozes when you bite it :) Never found another one like it.
