Jane's Story

This also came from the mag Saveur in their burger edition and was sponsored by the Alexia company.
We happen to love carmelized onion and cheddar so this was a go to many times for us.


2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 large
yellow onion, sliced into 1/4 inch rings
12 oz
bottle stout beer, guinnes would work good here
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 1/2 lb
ground chuck
4 slice
cheddar cheese
4 large
sesame seed buns
dijon mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat oil in frypan, add onions, and cook over med high heat until browned, about 10 min.
Add beer and cook until the beer has reduced almost completely, about 10 min, season with the salt and pepper.
Season patties and grill to desired doneness, for us that's 6 to 8 min or so.
Top each burger with cheese the last few min of cooking to melt.
To assemble, slather dijon mustard on buns and top burgers with onions.

    OMG Thea this would be so perfect for that!
    We both love carmelized onions and melted cheese on anything, so this is another go to's for us.
    Donna, Harry is doing great, at this very moment he is a free range weasel, and chasing Princess kitty. I put the play tent up in the living room. They chase each other around and in it. Harry jumps right on top of the tent and collapses it on her and off they go again.
    He was out about a half hour earllier when I was fixing breakfast. Put him back in his cage, he used his litter box immediately, so the rules are he can come back out then.
