Grilling season means burgers. Remember me telling y’all about our BBQ adventures last week when we were discussing lamb tacos? Well, I’m back with another grilling recipe today and this time it’s burgers. Crispy fried onion swiss burgers to be exact.
Have you missed me?! I feel like I haven’t been around as much. Well, I mean, I am around I’m always on Facebook and Instagram chatting with y’all and responding to emails and questions and such. But I haven’t been here sharing recipes as often. Want to know why?! Maybe I’ll tell you in a couple weeks..
Anyway, this weekend we had some friends come over for lunch. Typically when people come over it’s kind of a big deal. I mean we clean the floors and hide the laundry that usually ends up piled on the couch (little miss is currently going through a ‘let me change clothes 20 times a day’ phase). And when people come over we go all out with the meal. Well, this weekend seemed super laid back. And easy. Compared to the usual. And I will tell you why here in a moment. I can’t keep everything to myself!
Even though the meal seemed super easy to prepare and cook, I feel like it was still impressive. I mean, just look at the pictures! To start let’s talk about the crispy fried onions. Very easy to make. But there are some very important tips you need to know when making them. The three commandments of crispy fried onions according to the Pioneer Woman. First. Cut the onions super thin. Lucky for me I have an amazing father-in-law who loves to spoil me and sent me that gorgeous knife in the picture.
It’s an Asian blade, which means that it has a super thin blade and it’s sharp. Very sharp. To be honest I never even knew there was a difference between Asian blades and European blades until Papa Kruz let me in on this last week. My point..use a sharp knife to cut the onions super thin!
Second. Give them a soak in buttermilk for at least an hour. This is going to make the onions tender.
Third. The oil needs to be heated to 375 degrees when frying them up. Again, according to Pioneer Woman, it’s a must. So I just go with it. I’m scared to try anything else…
And there you have it. Crispy fried onion strings. Frying things in the house isn’t so bad. I find the easiest way to do it is in my largest pot or dutch oven. Heat the oil, and since we want to know how hot the oil is a thermometer definitely comes in handy. Candy thermometers come with a clip that attaches to the edge of the pot. Easy peasy. Then just make sure you’re doing the frying in batches, don’t put everything in all at once. And use heat resistant tools!!! It’s possible I’ve melted some plastic tools before… Shhh…
The other important ingredient to this burger is the swiss cheese sauce. Do you remember that from the Cuban Fries?? Umm..yea! I know you do. If not, go take a peek. You can’t miss out on that one!
Now. I promised you the reason why this meal was so easy to put together. We didn’t have to make the patties ourselves!! We used Johnsonville Grillers! A sausage spin on your typical burger. A great alternative for any BBQ. These patties pack huge flavor including: Mushroom Swiss, Cheddar Bacon, and Original Bratwurst. We went with the Mushroom Swiss Grillers. Which paired perfectly with my swiss cheese sauce and crispy fried onions.
These Johnsonville Grillers made for a delicious, and easy meal that everyone was able to enjoy.
