    From the Test Kitchen

    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.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare & roast the sweet potato
    1 Prepare & roast the sweet potato

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Wash, dry, and peel the sweet potato; cut into 1-inch-wide wedges. Transfer to the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the dipping sauce

    Meanwhile, 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. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Form the patties
    3 Form the patties

    In a medium bowl, combine the beef and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. 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 onion in the pan, transfer the cooked patties to a plate. To the pan, carefully add the honey (kneading the packet before opening), hot sauce, and remaining worcestershire sauce. 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.

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

Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, cooked patties, and caramelized onion. Serve the burgers with the roasted sweet potato wedges and dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy!
