Double Chili Cheeseburger with Griddled Onions

Double Chili Cheeseburger with Griddled Onions

There is nothing better than a griddled cheese burger with onions ... except maybe when you add chili. Oh yeah, babe.

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 8 (3-ounce) hamburger patties, each about 1/3-inch thick
  • Essence
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces sharp Cheddar, cut into 8 slices
  • 1 cup thinly sliced yellow onions
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Down Home Chili


  • Preheat the griddle. 

  • Season the onions with Essence, salt, and pepper. Add the onions to the griddle and cook, stirring until wilted, about 8 minutes.

  • Lightly season the patties on both sides with the Essence, salt, and pepper.   Place the patties on the hot griddle and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the patties, add 1 slice of cheese to each, and continue to cook. Meantime, place the hamburger buns, inside down, on the griddle, and cook until warmed through and lightly toasted, about 2 minutes.   Place one toasted bun on a serving plate. Place one patty on the bottom bun, spoon chili on top of the patty, and top with a second patty and more chili. Place a portion of onions on the chili and top with bun. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, and serve immediately.
