  • Yield: Serves 8 (serving size: 1 burger)
  • Hands-on:28 Minutes
  • Total:28 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 8 slider buns, toasted
  • 1 1/2 cups arugula
  • 8 thin tomato slices

Preparation

1. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan; coat onion with cooking spray. Cook 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender and browned. Remove pan from heat. Finely chop 1/4 cup onion, and place in a medium bowl, reserving remaining onion in pan.

2. Add salt, pepper, and beef to caramelized onion in bowl; mix well. Divide beef mixture into 8 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/4-inch thick patty.

3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Place patties on grill pan. Grill 3 minutes on each side, until a thermometer registers 160° or until desired degree of doneness.

4. Place mayonnaise and blue cheese in a food processor; process until smooth. Spread blue cheese mixture evenly on bottom halves of buns. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each bun. Top patties evenly with arugula, tomato slices, and remaining caramelized onion; cover with bun tops.
