A delicious masterpiece that mixes the addictive crunch of fried onions with the juicy goodness of a burger. Originating in the centre of Oklahoma, this dish is a tribute to straightforward yet creative cooking methods.


  1. 1 Lb.Of ground beef (80% lean).
  2. 1 large yellow onion – sliced.
  3. Salt and black pepper – to taste.
  4. 4 hamburger buns.
  5. Butter, for toasting buns.
  6. Mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, and other condiments of your choice.
  7. Sliced cheese (optional).
  8. Lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and other preferred burger toppings.


Step One:

Slice the yellow onion as finely as you can to start. For the most genuine Oklahoman experience, aim for slices that are as thin as paper and that caramelise gently when cooked.

Step Two

With light pressure, form the ground beef into four equal-sized patties. To get a consistent coating, season the meat on both sides with salt and black pepper before to cooking.

Step Three

Heat a skillet or griddle over a medium heat to prepare it. You should first brush the hob with a little oil before adding the sliced onions. They should be cooked until they have a deep golden colour, stirring from time to time. It should take ten or fifteen minutes to finish this. Set them aside once they’ve turned caramelised.

Step Four
In order to achieve the distinctive texture of an Oklahoma Fried Onion Burger, you should use a spatula to press each patty firmly onto the heated cooking surface. Press firmly to form a thin patty, letting the edges crisp as you work.

Step Five

Top each of the smashed patties right away with a generous portion of the caramelised onions. Give them an opportunity to blend into the meat as it cooks more.

Step Six

In a different frying pan, toast the hamburger buns with a small amount of melted butter until they turn a colour that is halfway between golden and light brown. You can choose to add a bit of cheese to the top of each burger while it’s still cooking on the griddle. Put a lid on the pan to help the cheese melt more easily.

Step Seven:

Coat the bottom of each toasted bun with a few of your preferred toppings. After you’ve positioned a burger over the onions, caramelise them. Add lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, or any other toppings you choose to your sandwich. While it’s still hot, place the top half of the bread on top and serve.
