Cheeseburger Bar

A final BBQ with family and friends to say farewell to summer is something I look forward to every year. Another thing I’m looking forward to this year is making a burger bar! Instead of plain boring burgers I’m going to have all sorts of delicious toppings, cheeses and sauces so that each of my guests can create their own custom burger just the way they like it or maybe even try something new!

Sweet and spicy sauce:

In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, horseradish, honey mustard, pickles and Worcestershire sauce. Place in your refrigerator and chill 30 minutes. In a saucepan over low heat place the olive oil and 1 onion sliced into rings. Slowly saute for 20 minutes or so until the onions become a light caramel color. Then add the teaspoon balsamic vinegar and stir well. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl combine the meat, steak seasoning and Worcestershire sauce. Divide into 4 balls and flatten into patties. Preheat grill to medium high and grill burgers 3-4 minutes per side for medium or 4-5 minutes per side for a more well done burger. Place desired cheese on burgers in the final minute of grilling.

The two burgers I made were very different but both so delicious!

Burger #1 was a cheddar cheeseburger topped with caramelized onions and BBQ sauce.

Burger #2 was a provolone cheeseburger topped with lettuce, raw onion slices, a tomato slice, avocado slices and the sweet and spicy sauce.
