Mini-Burger with egg and Fried Onions

I was not going to post this recipe but after it was plated it looked to good not to post! Oh and it tasted great as well.


  • Vegtiable oil for frying the onions
  • Yellow onions – go with 2 or 3 good size then slice them
  • 1 Tablespoon of flour
  • Pepper – couple of grinds
  • Salt – Dash
  • Ground Beef – one pound – Go with the 93% lean. Yes I know 80/20 is known for a good burger but I prefer less fat
  • 1 hard boiled egg – sliced with an egg slicer
  • Mini buns/Dinner rolls
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Mustard


First up is to prepare the French Fried Onions. You can purchase these in the store but they are so expensive for so little as for me I always make my own.

Add enough oil to a deep skillet that will cover the onions that are laid out in single layer. Heat the oil in the skillet. While the oil is heating put the sliced onions in a large bowl add a tablespoon or two of flour mixing to coat the onions.

Fry the onions in small batches turning once or twice. Be genital as the flour comes off easy. You have to watch closely while cooking because the onions go from nice and brown to burnt quickly. Once nice and brown remove from oil and place on a plate with paper towel. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Repeat until done.

Once the French Fried Onions are cool add about a cup to the ground beef and form patties that are 2 to 3 ounces in size. Cook in skillet over medium high each 3-4 minutes per side.

Slice your mini-burger buns/dinner rolls. You could toast them now.

Build the burger! Put the burger on the lower part of the bun. Add two slices of the hard-boiled egg, french fried onions, Parmesan Cheese then the top half of the bun with mustard. Eat!
