Cheddar Beer Burgers with Caramelized Dijon Onions

Moist and flavorful burgers courtesy of Mix and Match Mama. Be careful not to over work the meat. Just mix lightly until combined. The raw patties might feel a little loose, but they come together very well and make a nice, solid burger once cooked. Enjoy!

Cheddar Beer Burgers with Caramelized Dijon Onions
Makes 4 large burgers


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 bottle of beer (Divided, 1/3 cup for burgers, 1/3 cup for onions)
  • 1 small onion, sliced into rings
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • Cheddar Cheese, 1 slice per burger
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • Salt and Pepper (S&P)
  • Burger Buns


  1. Preheat your outdoor grill to medium-high or preheat your indoor grill pan.
  2. Combine your ground beef, 1/3 cup of beer, and a liberal pinch of salt and pepper and mix together. Separate meat mixture into four sections and shape each section into a burger patty.
  3. Grill your burger patties about 6 minutes on each side or until done to your likeness.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute your chopped onion in a drizzle of EVOO.  Once the onions start to caramelize (about 5 minutes or so), stir in your Dijon mustard and a good splash of beer (like another 1/3 cup or so).  Reduce heat to low and let your onions saute until your burgers are done (just a few minutes).
  5. Top each burger with a slice of cheese about a minute before you pull them off the grill.  Add to the hamburger buns and top with onions.
