Do you like grilled onions on your hamburger? I sure do and have found a fun and easy way to add grilled onions to your hamburger without having to dirty a new pan.
For me, the best part of a hamburger is having grilled onions, cheese and a jalapeño! Because making grilled onions takes too much time so I don’t usually make them, if I do make grilled onions, I typically would chop the onions and saute them in a pan until they are soft, browned and sweet. Then the burger would be cooked either on the grill or in a pan, this process would take me time and it would dirty 2 pans…or if I am cooking the hamburger in the same pan, I’d have cold grilled onions on my hamburger…not good!
I decided to experiment and took onions, sliced thin and placed them in the pan, then place the burger on top of the uncooked onions. I used a George Forman Grill which made this a whole lot easier and healthier as all the fat from the burger drained out of the pan.
Here is how it looks, slice the onions as thin as you can
place the raw onions on your sprayed pan (this would not work on your bbq, I used a George Forman Grilling Machine which I have to say I loved)
place the uncooked hamburger patty on top of the raw onions, if you wanted to make chicken burgers, don’t forget about my amazing recipe
this is what you will see when you flip the burger over…grilled onions on your burger!
All those onions cooked down, directly into the hamburger…how much are you going to love this? And remember only one pan was used. Not only was it great as I only used one pan, the onions cooked in the same time it took to cook the burger (if you want your onions more grilled, just place them on the grill a few minutes prior to the burger).

Have fun in creating your own burger, you can add cheese and grilled jalapeno, like I did for my hamburger or top your hamburger with anything you love. I loved the simplicity of this and I thought it was genius to simplify the cooking process! Look at me go…
