Bodalicious Burgers

Tonight is the epitome of the perfect grilling weather. The breeze is calm, no cloud in the sky, the sun is just starting to set (with no humidity), and it's 72 degrees outside. My DB has been craving burgers, and tonight was a great night to indulge. We picked up some Angus beef and set out to grill. I am not a red meat fan, but WOW- these burgers were OUTSTANDING! But, it wasn't the burger meat or cheese (though both were quite tasty) that made this so delicious- the grilled, seasoned onions were THE hit. Incredibly delicious, seasoned well, and perfect on top of the burger- make it in your rotation for your next grilling adventure. It took no time, and very little ingredients. The original recipe is posted below with my comments in italics.

8 ground beef patties (2-lb) (We made 3 Angus beef patties)
8 kaiser rolls, split (I used 3 whole-wheat buns)
2 tomatoes, each cut into 8 slices (I used 1 tomato)
8 Kraft singles (I used 3 slices)

Seasoned sauteed onions
2 Tbsp olive oil (I used 1 Tbsp)
3 sweet onions (2-lb) (I used 1.0-lb sweet onion)
1/4 cup Miracle Whip (I used 1/8 cup Miracle Whip Light)
3 Tbsp A-1 Steak Sauce (I used 2 Tbsp A-1 sauce)

1. Grill the beef patties. When the burger is near the desired temperature, place the cheese on top, and grill until warm and melted.
2. Meanwhile, slice the onions thinly into rings.

3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add the onions, separating them as you add to the skillet. Cook and stir for 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

4. Stir in Miracle Whip and steak sauce.

5. Fill rolls with tomatoes, burgers, and onion mixture.
