Hold The Onions

By • Nov 12th, 2007 • Category: Burger Toppings

If there is a single vegetable that can be said to be universal, that vegetable is surely the onion. Records show that the onion has been eaten by humans for thousands of years and probably has been in our diet for millions more.

The onion can be served raw as part of the salad of a cheeseburger but by far the most common use is to fry or saute the onions in some oil or fat so they become soft and sweet.

This process, know as caramelizing, literally transforms the raw onion from a sharp, sour and almost repulsive vegetable to a succulent and sugary addition to the cheeseburger.

The flavor of cooked onion is so universally accepted that diced onion is often included on the recipe for making the beef patty itself, an accolade only matched by salt, pepper and bread crumbs.
