Ranch Burgers with Grilled Sweet Onions

  • 4 lbs ground beef/turkey
  • 1 oz Hidden Valley dry Ranch mix
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, or cheese or your liking
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced (optional!)
  • 1/2 tablespoon cracked black pepper
  • Hamburger buns
Grilled Sweet Onions
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into 1/2 inch rings
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Sweet Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon cracked black pepper

1. In a medium bowl, mix sliced onion, olive oil, and rice vinegar. Toss the onions until coated well, sprinkle with garlic salt and cracked pepper, toss again. Set aside, mix every 5-10 minutes for 30 minutes. This will marinate in to the onion, and make for a delicious topping!

2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl mix ground beef/turkey, ranch mix, cheese, minced jalapeno, bread crumbs, and pepper. Don't be afraid to get your hands messy, it's the best way to mix it well!

3. Form patties slightly larger than the hamburger buns (they will shrink when grilled), set aside to grill.

4. Line a grilling rack with foil so the onion slices don't fall through. Place onion slices in a single layer on top of foil lining. Heat grill to medium-high heat, place grilling rack on bottom rack, grill burgers for about 5-7 minutes on each side. Onion slices will be done once the burgers are finished.

5. I toasted the hamburger buns just before the burgers came off of the grill, under the broiler in the oven for about 2 minutes (or until light brown).

6. Top burgers with grilled sweet onions, it really doesn't need cheese, or other condiments! This will become a BBQ favorite, enjoy!
