A few weekends ago, we were all watching Cook’s Country together (yes, my 5-year-old loves watching cooking shows. It warms my heart). They were doing a thing called Oklahoma Fried Onion Burgers and they looked delicious.
For some reason this episode has aired at least 3 or 4 times in the span of 2 weeks and I finally told SP I had to do it. So he picked up some ground beef from the store and I was planning on making some beef on Saturday for dinner. Then we had a ridiculously huge lunch and couldn’t bear the thought of eating again. The minced meat went to the freezer, where it was quickly forgotten. I finally remembered I wanted to make the recipe and put the burgers on the menu a couple of nights ago. It was so good that I had to write it down right away.

°Salt and Pepper
°1 lb. minced meat
