Cheeseburger Stuffed Onion Rings
Cheeseburger stuffed onion rings are delicious and easy to make. The are fast food bursting with flavour that the entire family will love. I use my old standby hamburger recipe to make these consisting of lean ground beef, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, tabasco, and garlic. When these ingredients are combined with your choice of onions and the dredge, the taste is out of this world.
Although these tasty cheeseburger stuffed onion rings are considered to be a snack by many, they could suffice as an entire meal. Serve them up with a tossed salad and dinner is ready. The kids will love them too.
There are, of course, some variations to the recipe. For example, you can alter the ingredients in the hamburger mixture. If you like garlic, add more. The same applies to the rest of the ingredients. I have known some people to add finely chopped veggies to their mixture as well. The sky is really the limit. In other words, add what you like and omit what you wish.
The type of onion you use is entirely up to you. I just use white onions as the contain a bit less water than yellow, but Spanish or any other type of onion can be used. It really depends on your tastes.
I use cheese slices, but I’m sure to use the real cheese and not the processed. Any type of cheese can be used in the recipe, however.

- Add the beef to a bowl followed by the garlic, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, the tabasco, salt, and pepper. Using a wooden spoon, mix until well combined.
- Peel the onion and cut it into half inch pieces.
