It’s the original Oklahoma onion burger recipe straight from the kitchen it was born in - watch and learn how to make this fried cheeseburger and you’ll see why it changed the game back in the day.
The Real Oklahoma Onion Burger
For this cook you’ll need a flat top grill or griddle. The onion burger is cousin to the infamous smash burger - and you know, if you try to smash a burger on regular grill grates, it will fall right through.
So, oil up your flat top, and portion the ground beef into whatever size you want the patties to be. Throw these meatballs on the griddle and place a hefty amount of super thin sliced onion on each of them, then use a sturdy spatula to mash the meat into proper patty shape. The onion will almost incorporate into the meat, giving it more mass (and flavor!) Season with Texas Beef and flip.
Now place the buns on top of the patty, just to steam them a lil bit. After 30 seconds or so, remove the buns and place one slice of American cheese on each patty to melt.
Once the patties are done, pull them off the grill and place them on the patty right away. Top with some yellow mustard and pickle slices, plus anything else you like on your cheeseburger!
