Read more

There are a lot of burger recipes out there, we know. But we like to think that this is the burger that tops all burgers, thanks to oozy, melty Monterey Jack cheese and jammy balsamic onions. Oh, and we should mention that this patty comes with breaded zucchini on the side, so you can get your fix of crispy, crunchy finger foods and a dose of veg all in one.

Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to upper position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mince or grate 1 clove garlic (use other as you like). Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Cut zucchini into 3-inch-long pieces, then halve each piece lengthwise. Cut halves into thin wedges.

In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise and as much garlic as you like (start with a pinch and add more from there). Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, tossing occasionally, until caramelized, 8-10 minutes. Stir in vinegar and 1 tsp sugar. Continue cooking until syrupy, 1-2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside in another small bowl.

While onion cooks, toss together zucchini and ½ TBSP garlic mayo in a medium bowl until wedges are evenly coated. Add ¼ cup panko (we sent more), oregano, and a large pinch of salt and pepper and toss so that crumbs stick to zucchini. Spread on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake in oven until panko is golden brown, about 15 minutes, tossing halfway through. TIP: It’s OK if not all the breadcrumbs stick.

Wash out and dry pan you cooked onion in. Heat a drizzle of oil in it over medium-high heat. Shape beef into two patties. Season all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until patties almost reach desired doneness, 3-5 minutes per side. Top each with cheese. Cover pan to melt cheese and allow patties to finish cooking, about 1 minute.
