Anne Burrell’s Double Cheeseburger
1 tbsp. canola oil
2 cups diced yellow onions
1½ tsp. kosher salt, divided
8 (3-oz.) very thin, wide 80/20 ground-beef patties
¼ cup country-style Dijon mustard
8 dill pickle chips
8 American cheese slices
4 large sesame-seed hamburger buns, split
¼ cup ketchup
1. Preheat grill to high (450°-500°). Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium high. Add onions and½ teaspoon salt, and cook, stirring often, until onions begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool.
2. Spread both sides of patties evenly with mustard, and sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon salt.
3. Place patties on a lightly greased grill grate, and grill, uncovered, 3 minutes; flip patties. Spread cooked onions over patties; top 4 patties with 2 pickle chips each. Top all 8 patties with cheese, and grill until cheese is melted and patties are no longer pink in center. Place 1 patty without pickles on top of each patty with pickles.
4. Grill buns, cut side down, until toasted, about 1 minute. Place 1 double patty on each toasted bun. Spread ketchup on toasted side of bun top. Add your favorite burger toppings, and cover patties with top bun.

Tip! If you like thicker burgers, form 6-oz. patties instead. Make a small dimple in the center of each patty with your thumb—it’ll prevent the meat from puffing up as it cooks.
