Mini Burgers with Cheesy Onions

Original Recipe: http://www.bhg.com/recipe/mini-burgers-with-cheesy-onions/

  •      1 egg, lightly beaten
  •     3/4 cup soft bread crumbs
  •     1 teaspoon steak seasoning
  •     1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  •     Salt
  •     Ground black pepper
  •     2 tablespoons butter
  •     2 large sweet onions, cut into thin wedges
  •     1 teaspoon snipped fresh thyme
  •     1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •     1/2 cup shredded smoked gouda cheese (2 ounces)
  •     12 cocktail buns, split and toasted

  1. In a large bowl combine egg, bread crumbs, and steak seasoning. Add ground beef; mix well. Shape mixture into 12 small patties. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Lightly grease the rack of an indoor electric grill or a grill pan. Preheat to medium. Place patties on grill rack or in pan. If using a grill with a cover, close lid. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until done (160 degrees F).* If using an uncovered grill or a grill pan, turn patties once halfway through grilling.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet melt butter over medium-low heat. Add onions, thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, covered, for 13 to 15 minutes or until onions are tender, stirring occasionally. Uncover; cook and stir over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes more or until onions are golden. Stir in cheese until melted.
  4. Serve burgers in buns with cheesy onions.
