Beef Fry and Onion-Filled Hamburgers

Beef Fry and Onion-Filled Hamburgers

This is a burger experience. The surprise center adds a huge burst of flavor. These are amazing on their own — no need for any toppings.



  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 6-oz (170-g) pkg sliced beef fry, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced


  • 3 lbs (1.3 kg) ground beef
  • 34 cup seasoned panko crumbs
  • 3 Tbsp prepared barbecue sauce
  • 13 red onion, grated
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 34 tsp salt
  • 14 tsp black pepper

Heat olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add diced beef fry and toss until crispy, about 4–6 minutes. Remove to a plate. In the same pan, sauté the diced onion over medium-high heat until golden, about 8–10 minutes, stirring constantly. Combine with the beef fry. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine all the burger ingredients. To form uniform patties, take a 3-inch (712-cm) jar lid. Place a small piece of plastic wrap inside it. Press a small handful of ground beef mixture into the lid. Press down and level the mixture, then turn over onto a lined baking sheet.

Place 1 Tbsp of the beef fry mixture in the center of half the patties. Top each filled patty with a second, unfilled patty. Seal the edges. Grill patties for 3–4 minutes on each side.
