Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 pound ground beef chuck (20% fat), or 4 vegetarian patties such as Lightlife Plant-Based Burgers
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 slices rye bread
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1 large onion, sliced into 1/4" rounds
8 thin slices cheddar, American, or Swiss cheese
8 teaspoons mayonnaise, divided

Steps:

  • Season beef with salt and pepper; divide into 4 patties. Form each patty into a thin oval that is slightly larger than a slice of bread you're using.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet or griddle, preferably cast iron, over medium-high. Cook onion slices in a single layer, being careful not to let rings separate, until softened and charred, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and divide into individual rings.
  • Add remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to skillet. Working in batches if needed, cook patties, pressing flat with a spatula, until browned but still pink in the center, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  • Wipe out skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Top each slice of bread with 1 cheese slice, 1 patty, one-quarter of the onions, another slice of cheese, then a second slice of bread. Spread tops of each sandwich with 1 tsp. mayonnaise. Working in batches if needed, cook sandwiches, mayo side down, spreading the top of each sandwich with 1 tsp. mayonnaise, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.

  • If you don’t already have caramelized onions then slice two large onions in half, peel and then in cut half moons. Heat a Tablespoon canola oil in skillet over medium high heat and cook onions for 20-25 minutes until they are a nice golden brown. Stirring often.If the onions are browning too quickly turn heat down to medium. If liquid evaporates add a little more oil or some water. You want some kind of liquid so that the onions don’t burn.If using frozen caramelized onions, heat over medium heat. Once warm remove to a platter and cover with foil.
  • Use the same pan to cook the burgers and eventually the patty melts. Divide 1-pound ground beef, preferably grass fed, in fourths.Make an oval patty that’s a little larger than the bread itself since the meat will shrink when you cook it.Transfer to a parchment lined baking tray, sprinkle one side with salt and pepper and pop in the freezer for a few minutes, about 10-15.
  • While freezing the patties, assemble the remaining ingredients and prepare any side dishes that you plan to serve.Griddle the patty melts on the stove over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Flip when you see the juice rising to the top. Remove when cooked.
  • Place the cheddar cheese on a slice of bread, pile on some caramelized onions, then the cooked burger, and finally the Swiss cheese and another piece of rye bread. Spread onerye piece with softened butter or mayonnaise.

  • To make The Best Burger Sauce, combine all ingredients and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To shape the burgers, split the ground beef into 4 even balls. Roll and pack each ball tightly, then press the burgers out on parchment paper to a large round, roughly ½ inch thick. Thinner burgers are better for this. Cover and refrigerate until 30 minutes before you're ready to cook.
  • Heat a griddle pan or large saute pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and season with a pinch of Kosher Salt. Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the onions are golden brown and lightly caramelized. Leave a little crunch for texture. Set aside.
  • Turn up the heat on the pan from the onions to medium-high. Liberally season both sides of the burgers and place evenly spaced on the griddle. Using your thumb, make an indent in the center of each patty to prevent puffing.If your pan is not large enough to space out the burgers, you'll want to cook in batches.Cook 5-8 minutes on each side depending on your desired doneness.
