Cheeseburgers and Grilled Onions


1 pound Ground Beef

1 tablespoon chopped thyme

1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 large onion, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and pepper

4 hamburger buns or Kaiser rolls, split

3 ounces crumbled or shredded cheese (mozzarella, goat cheese, feta or blue cheese)

Combine Ground Beef, thyme and garlic in medium bowl, mixing thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

Brush both sides of onion slices with oil.

Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange onion slices around patties. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant - read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

Grill onions 15 to 20 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally and brushing with oil. (Grilling times for onions remain the same on gas grill.)

Season burgers with salt and pepper, as desired.

Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thawed Ground Beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness. Place 1 burger on bottom of each bun; top evenly with cheese and grilled onions. Close sandwiches.
