These Garden Onion Burgers are no ordinary plain patties– they have the flavor of onion dip and the juiciness of a good burger.
Ready in 25 minutes
It is really hard to mess up a burger. I mean, seriously, when is the last time you had a bad burger? Sure, there are plain burgers or dry burgers or fatty burgers, but really does that ever stop you from eating and enjoying it?
It doesn’t me.
A few years back, I was visiting my Canadian in-laws (and spending hours counting how many times “eh” was said in a single conversation) and dinner time came. We had drank our fair share of Moosehead and were all starving for something good to soak up the alcohol. So my mother-in-law went to the kitchen and whipped up some burgers for my brother-in-law to grill.
The burgers looked unassuming. Honestly, I thought it was going to be one of the “normal” burgers I listed above. Not that it mattered– I was drunk and hungry! And like I said, no such thing as a bad burger.
And then I took a bite, and it was life-changing. Juicy, flavorful, beefy, and with a tinge of onion flavor. It was awesome. It tasted like my mother-in-law had spent hours coming up with a flavorful spice mixture and picking out the perfect cut of beef. But like all good food, the ingredients were actually deceptively simple: beef, breadcrumbs, egg, and onion soup mix.
Yup, that was it. I was floored! I headed home the next week and immediately hit up the kitchen to craft a Wholefully-style version of Garden Onion Burgers (sans the packet of processed onion soup mix). It turned out to be pretty easy to recreate the flavor using what I had in my spice rack.
