The Classic Burger

Submitted By: Teresa Vinson


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 of a medium onion, grated
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Hamburger buns to serve
  • Instructions

    Mix ground beef, grated onion, garlic, mustard, and pepper in a large bowl. Shape into eight equal size burgers and cover and let chill for 30 minutes. Grill or fry. In a large skillet, add olive oil and heat, add sliced onions, and sauté for 1-15 minutes, until onions are tender and have caramelized. Add brown sugar and cook until dissolved.
    Serve on toasted buns, with caramelized onions and other toppings of your choice. These caramelized onions are so delicious that I make them to serve with other foods as well.
