Beef Burgers with Crunchy Sour Cream Onions

Burgers are one of those great classics where when you have a recipe – and its good – its so hard to deviate and try something new. But with all the other burger recipes out there I realized I had to break my mold and try new things. Chicken, sausage, onions, mushrooms, barbeque, cheeses, stuffed, smoked, and seared… The possibilities are endless and Lord knows, I’ve yet to meet a burger I didn’t love. There’s something about the fresh ground meat cooked to perfection with the combination of bun and other deliciousness (or sometimes naked and cold leftover from yesterday) that simply makes my mouth water.

  1. Yum. Fire up the grill! I am going to add sriracha to the red ranch sauce! Your pics are marvelous and make my mouth water. Great post.

  2. I am a big fan of onion rings and putting them on top of a burger makes a sensational meal. That red ranch looks to be another wonderful touch-thanks for sharing-awesome!
