- 1 pound 80/20 ground beef (ground chuck is perfect)
- 2 tablespoon Cooking oil

Caramelized Onion Burgers
Divide the ground beef into 3 equal sections and gently form into rounds, then press firmly on them with a flat object, like the bottom of a plate, to press into patties. Season generously with salt and pepper.
Heat skillet on medium-high and add cooking oil. Once oil is shimmering add burger patties, cooking in batches if needed. Cook until brown crust forms on the bottom and the top is beginning to turn a deep red. Flip patties, top with cheese, and cook for a few minutes longer, until the cheese melts.
Lightly toast the buns, then spread Balsamic Mayo on the inside of the hamburger buns. Add burger patty to the buns and top with ~2 tablespoons caramelized onions per burger, or to taste.
After burger patties have rested for 5 minutes to allow juices to redistribute, serve and enjoy!
