How To Make Oklahoma Fried Onion Burgers

Combine the onion slices and 1

teaspoon of salt in a bowl and

toss to combine. Transfer the

onions to a colander and let sit for 30 minutes, tossing

occasionally. Transfer the onions to a clean dish towel, gather the

edges together and squeeze out

as much liquid as you can from

the onions. Do this over the sink

or a large bowl since the onions will have quite a bit of liquid in them.


Divide the onions into 4 separate mounds on a rimmed baking

sheet. Form the beef into 4

lightly packed balls. Place the

beef balls on top of the onion

mounds and flatten the beef

firmly (use your palm) so the

onion adheres to the beef. The

patties should measure 4 inches

in diameter. Season the beef

generously with salt and pepper.

Melt the butter with the oil in a

12-inch skillet over medium

heat. Using a large spatula,

transfer the patties to the skillet,

onion side down. Cook for 6-8

minutes, until the onions turn a

deep golden brown and begin to

crisp around the edges. Flip the

burgers, then increase the heat

to high and cook until well

browned on the second side,

about 2 minutes.

Add 1 or 2 slices of cheese to

each burger and allow to melt.

Add mayo, mustard and pickles

to the top buns, then place each

burger on a bottom buns. Serve immediately.
