  • 2 pounds good ground chuck
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 large buns
  • 8 slices white cheddar cheese
  • lettuce
  • 1 Recipe Spicy Onion Straws
  • 1 Recipe Sweet Fire Sauce (below)
  • For the Sweet Fire Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup good mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Thai Chili Sauce

  1. Prepare Spicy Onion Straws, set aside or in oven on 200 degree setting to stay warm.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together all of the Sweet Fire Sauce ingredients. Set aside while cooking the burgers.
  3. Wash leaf lettuce and tear leaves into 8 pieces.
  4. In a large bowl, break up the ground chuck into small pieces. Season beef with salt and pepper to taste. Form beef into 8 patties, 1/4 pound each. On the grill or a pan on the stove, cook each burger to desired temperature. Add a slice of white cheddar cheese on top of each burger and cook until the cheese is melted and dripping. Set aside.
  5. Toast both the top and bottom of the buns, then start assembling the Cheddar Onion Straw Burgers.
  6. Top each bun bottom with lettuce and a cheeseburger patty, then start piling on the Spicy Onion Straws.
  7. Drizzle Sweet Fire Sauce over the onion straws and for good measure, slather some on the top bun and crown that burger.
  8. You are now ready to bite into one of the most flavorful burgers you will ever taste.
