Cheddar Burger

 1 lb ground beef recommend 96% fat-free
 1 oz cheddar, shredded
 3 pieces of Grainiac Bread from Eureka or Similar from Dave's Killker bread
 ½ yellow onion, thinly sliced
 1 tbsp olive oil
 1 tsp garlic paste
 salt to taste
 pepper to taste
 2 tsp favorite fancy mustard

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.


Place onion in a medium or large pan and drizzle over 1 tbsp of olive oil. Cook on medium heat until caramelized and soft.


Place onions in a bowl and wipe out the pan.


Toast bread in the oven for 1-3 minutes. You could use a toaster if you prefer. I used 1/2 slice for each side of the hamburger.


Mix beef with garlic paste and add salt and pepper to the desired level. I did this in a medium mixing bowl.


Cook on medium heat for 3-5 minutes per side or until browned. On the second side, add onions and 1/3 of cheese to allow the cheese to melt.


Put a thin layer of mustard on the inside of each slice of bread and place the meat on the "bun".
