Smoky Chipotle Burgers
Have you ever gone on google and just searched for a simple food, such as burger and clicked on images? I do that sometimes for inspiration… and this is what I came up with last week; tons of veggies with the burger piled high with a delicious sauce! This time I went with my Chipotle Mayonnaise (hot! Hot! Hot!)….yum!
1 Batch of my go-to Beef Burgers
1 Batch of my Chipotle Mayonnaise
½ tbsp butter
4 Large onions, sliced in half moons
Add the butter to a large pan and heat over medium high heat.
When it’s hot and the butter has melted, add the onions and season with salt, mix well ensuring the onions are coated in the butter.
Continue sautéing at this temperature until you see the onions are starting to brown (about 10 minutes).
When the onions are starting to brown, drop the heat to low and allow them to caramelize for about 30 minutes, up to an hour (low and slow).
4 Whole wheat burger buns, toasted
4 Leaves of red leaf lettuce
1 Medium tomato, sliced
To serve, place the lettuce and tomato on the bottom bun, season the tomato with salt and pepper. Then top with the cooked burgers. Then put some onion on the burgers and top them with some of the mayo.
Top with the top bun and serve immediately!
- You can adjust the beef burgers to turkey or chicken burgers as the recipe notes.
- You can top with any garnish and sauce(s) of your choosing.
