Cheddar and Onion Smashed Burgers
[Adapted from Toronto Star who adapted it from June’s Food & Wine recipe from Umami Burger]


1 1/4 lb. (575 g) ground beef (not too lean)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 small yellow onions, sliced across the equator paper thin
4 oz (115 g) cheddar cheese, sliced
4 soft buns, split, warmed


Heat a large cast-iron skillet or cast-iron griddle over medium heat for 10 minutes.

Without overhandling meat, loosely form into four, 5-oz (140-g) balls.

Place in pan or on griddle. Cook, undisturbed for 30 seconds. Using large, unperforated, heavy spatula, flatten each ball into a 5-inch round patty. Season each with salt and pepper. Cook undisturbed for 2 minutes. Press one-quarter of the onions onto each patty (some will fall to side). Use a spatula to carefully flip the burgers so the onions are on bottom. Top each patty with a piece of cheddar cheese. Cook for 2 minutes. Cover and cook for 1 minute to melt cheese.

Transfer burgers with onions to buns.

Prep time: 5 min

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by! Feel free to dig deep into the posts, much treasures there. And leave your comments, I'd appreciate your words....] [P.S. Borrowed articles/photos can be deleted anytime, please advise.Thank you.]
