5 lbs medium ground beef
1 c. onion
1 c. grated cheese (a hard cheese that doesn’t melt too easily is best)
1 c. BBQ sauce of choice (I use The Keg’s, yum)
1 tbsp. coarse salt
2 tsp ground black pepper
Fine dice the onion and add to the meat in a large bowl.
Add the salt, pepper and BBQ sauce.
Form into approximately ¼ to 1/3 lb patties and place in the refrigerator for an hour if possible.
Prepare a dry rub or spice mixture of your choice, or use a store-bought one you like, ex: Montreal Steak Spice.
Get your grill as hot you can and oil it carefully, these are sticky patties!
Before grilling sprinkle with the spice mix and grill.
Yield: 16 patties
I served these burgers with slices of mozzarella, arugula, horseradish mayo, my quick pickled cucumbers and a large slice of yellow onion, but they are delicious served any which way. Bon appétit!
