To top beef patties (which are also deliciously packed with bites of melty gouda cheese), we’re making tender caramelized onion, which gets its rich flavor from additions of savory worcestershire sauce, honey, and hot sauce.

Prepare & roast the carrots:
1 Prepare & roast the carrots:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Wash, dry, and peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Transfer to the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 16 to 18 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
2 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

While the carrots roast, grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and half the worcestershire sauce.

Form the patties:
3 Form the patties:

While the carrots continue to roast, in a medium bowl, combine the beef and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine, then form the mixture into two 1/2-inch-thick patties. Transfer to a plate.

Cook the patties & caramelize the onion:
4 Cook the patties & 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 patties to one side of the pan. Add the sliced onion to the other side of the pan. Cook, occasionally stirring the onion, 4 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is slightly softened and the patties are browned. Flip the patties (carefully, as the oil may splatter). Continue to cook, occasionally stirring the onion, 4 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is softened and the patties are cooked through. Turn off the heat. Leaving the onions in the pan, transfer the cooked patties to a plate. Add the honey (kneading the packet before opening), hot sauce, and remaining worcestershire sauce to the pan. Stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer the caramelized onion to a bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
