Homemade Burger Juicy Tender Patties


Vegetable oil
1 Spanish onion, julienned
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 (4 oz each) ground beef patties, flattened until thin
2 slices American cheese
1 Martin’s potato hamburger bun
½ cup romaine, thinly shredded
1 thick slice of beefsteak tomato

½ cup ketchup
½ cup mayo
1 pickle, minced
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne
1 Tbsp parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste

In a skillet, heat vegetable oil on high and caramelize the onions. 
Season with salt and pepper; cook until dark in color. Remove cooked onions when finished, set aside. DON’T clean skillet.

Prepare the sauce. In a medium bowl, combine all sauce ingredients, mix well, and set aside.
Using the same skillet that you cooked the onions in, over high heat add a little oil and place flattened meat patties in skillet. Season with salt and pepper while in the pan.

Cook on each side for 1 minute, flipping twice. While finishing the cook time on the second flip, add 1 slice of American cheese on each patty. Cut heat on skillet and let meat rest in pan until cheese is melted.

Assemble burger in this order: bottom bun, burger sauce, lettuce, caramelized onions, tomato, stacked cheesy patties, top bun.
