Crunchy Onion Burgers

    A good burger makes everybody happy but when you get to put a new twist on it that's even better. This dish came from a back-of-the-box idea that my son found on the French fried onions that you use at Thanksgiving with green beans. It turned out to be a great idea. They are thick, juicy and the onions add a nice crunch and texture to the burger. 

Crunchy Onion Burgers
1-1/2 lb. ground beef
2 cups French fried onions
3 T. Worcestershire sauce
3/4 tsp. garlic powder

Combine beef, 1 cup of French fried onion and garlic powder in medium bowl. Shape into 6 patties. (They'll be big.)

Heat large skillet over medium high heat. Place burgers on hot skillet and cook until juices run clear, turning once after about 4-5 minutes. Total cooking time no more than 10 minutes.

Top burgers with remaining 1 cup of fried onions and serve on bun of choice. Makes 6.

Note - Burgers will look charred to almost the point of seeming burnt (probably because of the Worcestershire sauce) but they're not.

Serves 6.
