From the Test Kitchen

To make a deliciously rich topping for beef patties (which feature smoky gouda cheese mixed right inside), we’re caramelizing onion with worcestershire sauce and a touch of hot sauce.

  • 4 oz Smoked Gouda Cheese

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Remove the husks and silks from the corn, then wash and dry the cobs. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Halve the buns.

Caramelize the onion
2 Caramelize the onion

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the sugar, worcestershire sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), and as much of the hot sauce as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

Form & cook the patties
3 Form & cook the patties

In a large bowl, combine the beef and grated cheese; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 160°F.

Cook the corn

Working in batches if necessary, add the halved buns, cut side down, to the pan of reserved fond (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface.
