    Great onions. Used sun-dried tomato paste for a bit more "oomph." Easy and fast.

    YUM! I cooked them in a regular frypan (don't have a grill) and they were delicious. I topped them with Provolone and skipped the bun. Very flavorful. No other condiments necessary. The only issue I had was that they seemed to be very greasy. Unusually so for ground chuck and I think that it might have been from the tomato paste. I had to drain a lot of fat from the pan while cooking and squished the finished burgers with paper towels. They were still very, very good and juicy, and I will definitely make again only with ground sirloin which is lower in fat. I accidentally put basil in the onions and they turned out just fine. Really wish I could try them grilled. Make these, they are quick, easy, and really really good.

    I seriously make these about once a week for my family. The onions are so delicious you could almost just put them on a bun. The tomato paste keeps the burgers nice and juicy and omits the need to add ketchup on top.

    My Husband and I LOVED the burgers, they really don't need anything else! I just added baby spinach on my bun and a little greek yogurt and it was delicious!

    This recipe has become a favorite! It's great for an easy, week night burger that is filling and very good! We used angus beef (lean) and it was great!! A little extra tomato paste helps to keep it from being dry. I served it with baked butternut squash fries (a family favorite)

    Added a little beef broth to meat mixture, otherwise followed recipe exactly. Onions were delicious - will definitely make again.

    Great flavor from the tomato paste and Parmesan cheese! Cooked on the George Foreman, so not greasy at all. Toasted the buns.
