Cheddar Cheese Burgers with Caramelized Onions

I love a good burger in the summertime! This one hit the spot!

serves 8 ( 8 points +)

  • 1 T. olive oil, divided
  • 2 c thinly sliced yellow onion
  • ¾ tsp. salt, divided
  • 1 T. white wine vinegar
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 lbs. lean ( 93%) ground beef
  • ½ c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 c. baby spinach leaves
  • 4 hamburger buns ( 2 points, such as Healthy Life)
  • 8 T. light mayonnaise

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tsp. oil; swirl to coat. Add onions and ¼ tsp salt.; cook 15 minutes or until golden brown. Add vinegar. Cook 1 minute, then remove from heat.

Combine garlic with beef. Form into 8 patties. Sprinkle patties with remaining salt.
Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. oil. Cook burgers for 3 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. Top with shredded cheese. Cook 1 minute or until cheese melts.

Place ¼ c. spinach leaves on the bottom of each bun. Top with patty, then onions. Spread mayo on top half of bun and place on top of burgers.
