- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- Kosher salt
- 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 pounds 85% lean ground beef
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 4 hamburger buns (I used pretzel buns)
- 2 cups shredded gruyere cheese
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- Dijon mustard, lettuce, sweet potato fries, for serving
Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until it starts to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt, reduce the heat to medium low and cook, stirring occasionally, until deep golden, 10 to 15 more minutes. Add the chicken broth and 1 teaspoon of the Worcestershire sauce and simmer until the onion is tender and the liquid is almost evaporated, about 8 minutes.
Preheat the broiler. Gently mix the beef, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste, and the remaining Worcestershire sauce in a bowl with your hands. Form into four 3/4-inch-thick patties and place on a broiler pan. Make an indentation in the center of each with your thumb. Broil, turning once, 5 to 6 minutes.
Place the buns cut-side up on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with both cheeses and broil until melted, about 1 minute. Spread mustard on the buns and top with with lettuce, the burgers and caramelized onion. Serve with sweet potato fries.

Caramelized onions are up with chocolate, bacon, and browned butter in my world’s best foods list…and on a burger, nothing is better. This looks so good! And soo cheesy. My kind of burger for sure.
We pretty much love exactly the same foods!

Thank you! I really like getting to know the faces and voices too which is why I thought it might be fun.
It looks like a scrumptious burger! I’d love to see the particulars of how you use your no-knead bread dough to make a really great pizza.
Thanks Stacey! I love that idea!! 🙂
