Spicy Onion Burgers

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 20, 2010

Looking for something to grill this weekend…look no further!!!

I’ve been making all sorts of burgers this summer.  As part of my quest to grill more. (‘Cause Girls Grill Too, you know!)

And this might just be my new favorite. I *think* I enjoyed it better that a Guac-Topped Burger. I *think*.

Here’s the deal. Make your favorite burger, and while it’s grilling, saute some onions with a “condiment sauce.” Give the “condiment sauce” some zing.

Your taste buds will thank you. :)

That sounds really yummy! I would probably toss mine in a foil tray on the grill and cook them while the burgers cook.

I grill my onions when I make the hamburgers. on the grill..Just slice them thin, lay in tin foil and I put sugar, and butter in mine (but hot sauce yum..I’ll try that next time) they are done when hamberger’s are done/ No pan/skillet to wash…

This sounds delicious! Homemade burgers just don’t compare the pre-made store bought variety, and making your own variations can really spice up your summer dinner menu. I have once made burgers with onion soup mix to hold them together. I found that it worked much better than eggs. I just added the soup mix and Worcestershire sauce to the ground beef and made it into patties.
