Ingredients

For the patties:
1 small yellow onion, grated
1 pound Thrive Market 100% Grass-Fed Ground Beef (85/15)
1 egg
2 teaspoons Thrive Market Organic Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Garlic Powder
½ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Pepper

For the burgers:
1 tablespoon Thrive Market Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
4 pretzel buns

For the condiments:
Arugula
Tomato slices
Minced red onion
Thrive Market Organic Ketchup

Instructions


Make the patties:
Drain excess liquid from onion through a paper towel, then add all ingredients to a large bowl and gently fold together. Divide into four patties and shape into rounds about ¾-inch thick. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes.

Cook the burgers:
On the stove: Add oil to a large skillet set over medium heat. Add patties and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place one cheese slice on top of each patty; cover and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more, until melted. Serve with buns and your favorite toppings!

On the grill: Heat a gas grill to high and brush burgers with the oil. Grill until golden brown and slightly charred on the first side, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip burgers and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Place cheese on top and close grill; cook 1 minute more, until cheese is melted. Serve with buns and your favorite toppings!
