Hamburgers

Everyone loves a good burger. This recipe calls for a few extra ingredients, but most of it should already be in your pantry. These hamburger patties are full and moist, so no dried out burgers here! This recipe will serve 4-5 people, but in the comments section I will post the normal recipe I use for just B and I.

  1. Line a baking tray or plate with baking paper or aluminium foil.

  1. Once all patties have been formed, heat oil in frypan over medium heat.
  2. Add the ringed onion to the pan and cook for 2 minutes, stirring to coat in oil.
  3. Using a metal spatula move 4 patties to the fry pan, cooking for 4 minutes on each side (or until it’s cooked to your liking). Continue to cook onions.

  1. After the patties are cooked, turn heat to low and add individual cheese slices to the top of the patties. Allow cheese to melt over the pattie for 1 minute.

  1. Place cooked hamburger patties in a warm oven until the remaining patties are done. Alternatively, serve immediately then continue cooking the rest of the patties.
  2. When onions appear brown and translucent, remove from pan and set aside until serving.
  3. Once all patties are done, assemble on hamburger buns. I like to have my bun toasted in the oven for 2 minutes beforehand so it has a nice crunch to it. Top burger with onion and sauce.
  4. Serve with a salad or try our creamy hashbrown bake.
