"This is a really flavorful burger. The lovely onion slices cooked the way they are add to the overall appearance and flavour. The recipe is from Canadian Living Magazine test kitchens - They have some super recipes. This recipe is perfect for the BBQ too I had 1/2 red onion in the fridge so I just chopped it and added it while cooking the burgers."
