To make a deliciously rich topping for our patties (which feature smoky gouda cheese) we’re caramelizing onion with brown sugar, savory worcestershire sauce, and a touch of crushed red pepper flakes for flavorful contrast.

Title
  • 10 oz Ground Beef
  • 2 Potato Buns
  • 2 ears Of Corn
  • 2 oz Smoked Gouda Cheese

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Fill a medium 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; place in a medium bowl. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Halve the buns.

Cook the patties & caramelize the onion
3 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; season with salt and pepper. 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 browned and the patties are cooked through.* Leaving the onion in the pan, transfer the cooked patties to a plate. To the pan, add the sugar, worcestershire sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), and as much of the red pepper flakes 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. Turn off the heat. 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.
