This recipe creates two juicy Oklahoma-Style Onion Cheeseburgers.


Get ready for game days, barbecues, and the best burger nights ever with these juicy Oklahoma-Style Onion Cheeseburgers fresh off the grill! When you’ve got a list of barbecue recipes, it’s basically a crime not to include cheeseburgers. And we don’t mean those wimpy little fast food burgers, oh no. We’re talking patties so hefty, they’ve earned the right to be called “thicc” with two c’s. These aren’t your average fast-food fixes; they’re hefty, hearty, and destined to steal the show at your next backyard barbecue or game day feast.

The magic begins by preheating your grill to a toasty 450°F (232°C) and mixing together finely chopped garlic, onions, and parsley, breadcrumbs, whisked egg, ground beef, and seasoning to taste. Get ready to watch your ingredients transform into thick, juicy patties, perfectly sized to satisfy even the heartiest appetites.

Once on the grill, watch as the patties sizzle and sear, creating dazzling grill marks. After acquiring those beautiful grill marks, lower your grill’s temperature and then place your patties back on the grill (don’t forget the cheese!) with the help of your MEATER Plus or MEATER 2 Plus probe to ensure each patty is cooked to juicy perfection. Whatever doneness you prefer for your cheeseburgers, your MEATER probe has got your back! Once the MEATER App lets you know that your cheeseburger patties are done cooking, let your patties rest and prep your burger buns with your favorite toppings. 

So, fire up the grill, gather your ingredients, and prepare for cheeseburgers that are as big and bold as the great state of Oklahoma itself. With our Juicy Oklahoma-Style Onion Cheeseburgers, every bite is a nod to the art of grilling and the joy of indulging in a truly epic burger experience!
