Revisiting onions on burgers. We plant two types of onions. Sweet and long storage onions. The long storage ones are much stronger tasting but they last through to the next year. The sweet ones are Candy Onions and Walla Walla onions. They are not hot, they are sweet, but they only last about 3 months before they sprout. Usually when that begins happening I peel and chop them and freeze them in gallon sized bags. The sweet onions are also larger than the long storage onions, most approaching a pound each, the size of a softball.

Thanks again!

hmm, cool side of the grill, right?

They look like “trussing” needles. I think I have some somewhere from way back (new bride) when Julia demonstrated how to truss a bird. I think I used them once to truss a stuffed veal breast shut. LOL

I’ll have to search for them. Thank you GG for the idea.

Exactly. Hot water is the best way to treat the onions.

I can have them either way but I prefer the sharp taste and the crunchy texture of raw onions on burgers and hot dogs.

We will either have raw onion on our burgers or I'll sauté some with or without mushrooms instead.

I like them sautéed in the with the burger dripping after I flip them. I do also like them raw sometimes.

We've sautéed a large quantity of mushrooms and onions and frozen some in serving-sized packets for future use.

Gosh, I did not realise it was in old thread. Actually personally I love my onions sauteed with a lots of mushrooms. Spread that on the top of hamburger, cover with a slice of cheese, wait till cheese melts lucking the onions and mushroom inside so they don't fall off the hamburger when you eat. Serve. Yum. The best.

I'm a raw onion guy too. A ¼" thick slice of yellow or white onion gives a burger some zing.
