Mini Burgers with Cheesy Onions
Ingredients
1
egg, lightly beaten
3/4
cup soft bread crumbs
1
teaspoon steak seasoning
1 1/2
pounds lean ground beef
 
Salt
 
Ground black pepper
2
tablespoons butter
2
large sweet onions, cut into thin wedges
1
teaspoon snipped fresh thyme
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2
cup shredded smoked gouda cheese (2 ounces)
12
cocktail buns, split and toasted
Directions
  1. In a large bowl combine egg, bread crumbs, and steak seasoning. Add ground beef; mix well. Shape mixture into 12 small patties. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Lightly grease the rack of an indoor electric grill or a grill pan. Preheat to medium. Place patties on grill rack or in pan. If using a grill with a cover, close lid. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until done (160 degrees F).* If using an uncovered grill or a grill pan, turn patties once halfway through grilling.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet melt butter over medium-low heat. Add onions, thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, covered, for 13 to 15 minutes or until onions are tender, stirring occasionally. Uncover; cook and stir over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes more or until onions are golden. Stir in cheese until melted.
  4. Serve burgers in buns with cheesy onions.

*Tip:

The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A beef patty cooked to 160 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty into the center.
