Everything you love is waiting inside: Cheeseburger onion rings

Let’s face it: there are times when one just needs a cheeseburger with french fries, or better yet, onion rings! What if there was a way to combine the juicy flavor of a cheeseburger with the unbeatable crispness of an onion ring? Prepare to experience love at first bite with this recipe!

You will need (for four portions):

  • 1 red onion
  • 3.5 oz. ground beef
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 2 oz. cheese
  • dried bread
  • 2 eggs
  • flour
  • oil for frying 

Here's how:

  1. Halve the onion and set the four largest rings to the side. Chop the rest of the onion into small pieces. 
  2. Place the chopped onion into a bowl along with the ground beef, salt, pepper, and oregano. Mix well. Now spoon the ground beef mixture into the four onion rings. 
  3. Cut the cheese into four equal parts and place one piece atop each filled onion ring. 
  4. Grate the dried bread into a bowl. You will need two more bowls to hold the flour and whisked egg, respectively. 
  5. Dip each onion ring first in the flour, followed by the egg and finally the breadcrumbs. For an extra crispy version, dip once again in the egg and breadcrumbs.
  6. Finally, fry the rings in oil. 

If onion rings are your weakness, they certainly do not get better than this. If you dare to take it one step further, add a bit of ketchup to a hamburger bun, place the onion ring inside, and ta-da! It's a cheeseburger like you've never seen before. And no worries, there is always room on the plate for a bit of salad. ;) Enjoy!
