Grilled Cheese Cheeseburger

I came up with this recipe after researching some food sites looking for something different.  I came across a recipe and had to tinker with it and put my own spin on it... yum yum yummy is all I can say... It was absolutely delicious!!!!  Try it and enjoy...

Happy New Year and have a good 2011

Love, Joelle

Grilled Cheese Cheeseburgers

1 lb. ground beef ( I use 85% lean)
1 pkg. dried onion soup mix
1 egg
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
olive oil
salt & pepper
cheese slices ( I use Kraft)
Carmelized onions & mushrooms (cook in butter with a little salt & pepper until done)

In bowl mix ground beef, onion soup mix, egg, & dried bread crumbs combine well.  In skillet place patties , I make them extra thin making 5 patties per pound of meat.  I make the patties then place them in a pan drizzled with olive oil, pressing them extra thin (be careful the pan is hot).  I  cook for 2-3 minutes per side since they are so thin they don't need long).  While patties are cooking make grilled cheese, (butter a slice of bread put buttered side down in pan place 2 slices of  cheese on top of bread then top with an  additional slice of bread and place buttered side down on outside of sandwich).  Turn heat to medium ( I cook all the grilled cheese at once on an electric griddle much easier if you are making multiple sandwiches).  Turn grilled cheese when one side gets golden cook other side until done and cheese is melted.  Remove from pan immediately open sandwich and place beef patty (and onions & mushrooms and onions if using).  Cut in half and enjoy...
