For some reason, that episode aired at least three or four more times in less than two weeks, and I finally told SP I had to produce them. So he went to the shop and bought some ground beef, and I intended to make them.

Then we ate an absurdly large lunch and couldn’t bear the thought of eating again. The ground beef was placed in the freezer and immediately forgotten. Two nights ago, I remembered I wanted to cook the recipe and put the burgers on the menu. They were so excellent that I had to blog about them right away.

1 large peeled, halved, and thinly sliced onion with salt and pepper
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
4 to 8 slices of American cheese
For serving, mayonnaise, mustard, and pickles
4 toasted hamburger buns

Making Oklahoma Fried Onion Burgers
Toss the onion slices with 1 teaspoon of salt in a mixing basin. Toss the onions in a colander for 30 minutes, tossing occasionally. Place the onions on a clean dish towel, bring the edges together, and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Because the onions contain a lot of liquid, do this over the sink or in a large basin.
