  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons onion salt
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 ¼ cups barbecue sauce

SAUCE:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ONION TOPPING:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices smoked cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns, split

In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, onion salt and brown sugar. Add egg. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into four patties. Place in a shallow dish; pour barbecue sauce over patties. Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours.

In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients; cover and refrigerate until serving. For topping, melt butter in a small skillet. Stir in honey until blended. Add onions; saute for 15-20 minutes or until tender and lightly browned. Remove from the heat and keep warm.

Drain and discard barbecue sauce. Grill patties, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4 in from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Top each with a cheese slice; cook 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted. Serve on buns with sauce and onion topping. Yield: 4 servings.
