The ‘Sunday’ Burger

A recipe was passed on that is a big hit in our house. I like to call it the ‘Sunday’ burger. Here’s how it works:

1 lb of Extra Lean ground beef
1 Onion (either Vidalia or Yellow) – I also like to add onion powder for extra flavor
1 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
1 Egg
Cheese (usually Swiss or extra-sharp cheddar)
Onion Rolls
*Whatever vegatables you like – lettuce, tomatoes, pickles…
To prepare:
Chop four 1/4″ full onion slices – not too small, but not too big.
Add the hamburger, 1 cup of the breadcrumbs, the chopped onion, and an egg into a mixing bowl.
Mix it well (use your hands…). The mixture will make three normal or two large burgers.

Grill at 350 degrees for about twenty minutes, flipping once every five minutes.

Garnish with cheese and whatever condiments you like – ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickles… some baked beans, and a ‘heady’ beer… and enjoy!

This is a great alternative to the everyday burger. It has a more ‘mature’ taste, so I encourage all to give it a try.

*Couple of things:
1. These were made on Saturday (in the middle of some serious SEC Football action), so pardon the appearance.
2. Again with the Saturday thing – please pardon the dishes as well.

    What does one do with the remaining 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs?
