These burgers are absolutely divine. If you aren’t a fan of blue cheese, substitute feta or Gorgonzola crumbles. We suggest you serve with Sweet Potato Fries with Spicy Aioli Sauce. These cook perfectly in the Ronco Ready Grill.

Directions

1. Begin by caramelizing onions. Remove onion skins and thinly slice onions. Separate onion slices into individual pieces. Add olive oil and butter to a sauté pan. Heat over medium-high heat to melt butter. Add sliced onions, black pepper, salt and sauté until translucent (about 5 minutes). Stir in sugar and reduce heat to medium. Cook onions over medium heat for 20 minutes or until a nice deep caramel brown color, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to burn onions.

2. While onions are cooking, prepare the burgers. In a large mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs and hot water. Mix water and bread crumbs together to make paste. Add Worcestershire, black pepper, onion powder, dry mustard and ketchup to paste. Stir well to incorporate all ingredients.

3. With your hands, mix the seasoned paste into the ground chuck. Do not overwork the meat. Press out 8 equal-sized patties, about 1⁄2-inch thick, onto cutting board or wax paper. Make a small indentation in the middle of the burgers, but do not push a hole in the patty. Pick 4 patties and fill the indentations each with 1 tablespoon of blue cheese and 2 tablespoons of caramelized onions. Top the filled burgers with the other 4 patties. Pinch the sides together to seal the two patties together.

4. Place the 4 stuffed patties on the Grill Basket. Preheat your Ronco Ready Grill and grill burgers for 15-18 minutes.

5. When done, build your burger on a bun with mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato to garnish.
