This is a grilled burger inside 2 grilled cheese sandwiches with sauteed buttered onions! My husband said this was the best burger he had ever eaten. Warning: this is NOT low fat and it is addictive!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Two words describe this recipe... burger heaven. It's not something you would want to eat all the time, but as a treat it's fantastic. The seasoning of the patty is simple and tasty. Once assembled and you bite into this, there is oozy cheese from the buttery grilled cheese. There are no condiments on this burger, but you'll never miss them. The sauteed onions are just enough extra flavor to make it work.

How To Make grilled grilled cheese burgers with sauteed onions

  • Ground beef in a bowl with seasonings.
    Preheat a grill for high heat. In a medium bowl, lightly mix together the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, and garlic powder.
  • Meat formed into 3 patties.
    Form into 3 patties handling the meat minimally. Over handling will make the meat tough.
  • Brushing olive oil onto the patties.
    Brush both sides of each patty with some oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Grilling the burgers.
    Place the patties on the grill grate and cook for about 5-8 minutes per side or until cooked to your liking. I sometimes cook these in an iron skillet also.
  • Sauteeing onions in a pan.
    Saute sliced onion in butter in skillet until soft and done.
  • Preparing 2 grilled cheese sandwiches.
    To make grilled cheese put buttered bread 2 at a time in large skillet. Brown both sides and add 2 slices cheese to each sandwich.
  • Burger and onions placed on top of one grilled cheese sandwich.
    Put grilled hamburger and sauteed onions inside one grilled cheese sandwich.
  • Topping burger with a second grilled cheese.
    Top with a second grilled cheese.
