Beefy Burgers

I needed something quick and simple for dinner tonight and was craving burgers so I went with the meatloaf burgers I saw on Foodie Fashionista's blog and was pleasantly surprised at the taste and juiciness of these burgers. These will definitely be a go-to recipe this summer when we start using the grill more. I think I'll side them with sweet potato fries next time.

The only thing I didn't get right was the whole caramelized onion thing. Mine sort of just burned. Maybe I sliced them too thin? Not thin enough? Oh well... crispy onions tasted great on this too.

Meatloaf Burgers
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 egg, beaten (I used 1/4 cup egg beaters)
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 20 ounces 90% lean ground beef
Caramelized Onions
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup yellow onions, sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 cup red onions, sliced thin
  • pinch of sugar
Smokey Ketchup
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat.

At the same time
heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat in a small saute pan. Add onions and cover pan. Cook until onions are translucent, about 8 minutes. Add sugar and continue to cook for about 10 more minutes, until the onions are golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix ingredients from egg through bread. Stir in cooked onions and garlic. Add meat to bowl and mix well with hands. Mixture will be much wetter than a typical burger mixture. Shape meat into 6 equal patties. Grill or broil to desired level of doneness.

Mix ketchup and
Worcestershire sauce together.

Serve on a light hamburger bun with smokey ketchup and carmelized onions.

Yields 6 servings.
