100% Grass Fed Beef Burger Stuffed with Caramelized Onions and Smoked Gouda

  • 1.5 lb ground beef
  • 4 oz smoked gouda cheese, grated
  • 2 large yellow onions, sliced thinly
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Condiments of your choice (we like sweet pickles and aioli!)

In a large pan, with a lid, cook the onions in the olive oil over very low heat. Every 10 minutes or so remove the lid and stir the onions. When they are softened, remove the lid and continue to cook until they are golden brown and tender. Set aside to cool. Preheat your grill to high heat. To assemble your burgers, season the meat with salt and pepper and mix with your hands. Divide the meat into 8 equal portions. Mold each portion into a flat pancake-like disk. On 4 of the discs arrange about 2 Tbsp of cooked onions and 1 oz of grated cheese. Place the plain discs on top of these and press each together to form burger patties. Don’t mix the meat, just press it together to make a pocket. Drizzle burgers with a bit of oil and season with salt and pepper and place on the grill. Grill for about 3-4 minutes on each side for medium. Serve on toasted buns with condiments of your choice!
