Cheap and Cheerful Cooking: Mini Pork Cheeseburgers
I could not stop thinking about these little burgers once I saw them on FoodNetwork.com. Can someone come over and grill them for me? Any tiny burger with carmelized onions has got to be good.
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large onions, thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 pound ground pork
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
10 small rolls, halved lengthwise
10 slices chipotle gouda or pepper jack cheese
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions; cook until soft and golden, about 10 minutes. Raise the heat to medium-high and continue cooking, stirring, until uniformly brown, 5 to 10 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Mix the pork, garlic and parsley in a bowl. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and form into 10 small patties, being careful not to pack them too tightly.
Heat a grill pan over medium heat; grill the patties until medium-rare, about 4 minutes per side. Place a cheese slice on the bottom half of each roll; top with a burger, some caramelized onions and the roll top.
