The Best Burger Recipes: Caramelized Onion Burger Recipe With Wasabi Aioli

Looking for the best burger ever? This easy recipe might be it. This delicious burger recipe is based on a dinner received in a meal kit. This easy caramelized onion burger recipe is packed with flavor. If you're not a fan of wasabi, you could substitute prepared horseradish or leave it out all together. This amazing burger recipe could easily be doubled.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 30 minutes

Servings: 2


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon wasabi (or more to taste)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese (optional)
  • brioche buns, potato buns or regular hamburger buns
  • shredded lettuce

Here's how to make it:

Heat the olive oil in a  skillet. Add the onions and cook until they are soft and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Add the sugar and water. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring often, about 5 more minutes or until they get jammy. Remove to a bowl and set aside.

Combine the mayonnaise, wasabi, garlic and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Mix. Taste and add more wasabi, if needed. Set aside.

Shape the ground beef into two patties. Cook the patties in the same skillet until browned and cooked to desired doneness. If using cheese, add it when the burgers are almost done to melt.

To assemble the burgers, put a dollop of the wasabi aioli on the bun. Top with shredded lettuce, then the burger patty, caramelized onions and then a little more wasabi aioli.
