This week’s recipe is from Chefs Mike Price and Joey Campanaro of Market Table in New York City. They’ve given us their spin on a classic game day burger, which is sure to impress.
Game Day Burger
· 8 hamburger buns
· 8 8oz. patties ground Pat LaFrieda special blend beef
· 2 medium yellow onions
· 1 tbsp. butter
· 1 lb. sliced sharp white cheddar cheese
· 1 head bibb lettuce
· 2 red beefsteak tomatoes
· 1 cup sliced full sour pickles
· french fries or potato chips for 8
· salt & pepper to taste
Slice the yellow onion ¼ inch thick and sauté in 1 tbsp. of butter over medium heat until golden brown and caramelized. Reserve.
Season burgers with salt and pepper on both sides and grill over medium to high heat until charred and medium rare. Top the burgers with the warm caramelized onions followed by the sliced cheddar cheese.
While the cheese is melting, half and toast the bun over the grill. Place the burgers on the bun and serve with lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard. Serve with either potato chips or French fries.
