Caramelized Onion & Cheese Stuffed Burgers
Cougar Gold (made by the fine folks at Washington State University), makes these burgers taste outstanding. This isn't some old processed cheese food, this is the real deal. So make sure you get yourself a good sharp cheese.
2 Tablespoons butter
1 onion thinly sliced
8 ounces of sharp cheddar sliced into large pieces
2 slices bread
3/4 cup whole milk
2 pounds of ground elk, beef, deer, squirrel... whatever floats your boat (F.Y.I: I don't eat squirrel)
1 pound ground sausage
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons finely minced fresh parsley
Put bread slices in a bowl & pour milk over the top. Set aside.
In saucepan melt butter. Add onions & cook on medium heat stirring occasionally for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile add all remaining ingredients except the cheese to the milk soaked bread. Using your hands mix it all together until thoroughly incorporated.
Line a cookie sheet with tin foil & make desired size burger patty into a bowl shape. Place desired amount of onions & cheese (crumble into bits for even melting) into the middle. Top with a mini burger patty to enclose & press edges together so that onions & cheese are sealed up. Repeat with remaining meat.
Place patties on a hot grill & cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Serve immediately on some good hamburger buns & all the toppings & enjoy!
