Mini cheeseburgers with fried onions


1 pound minced Aussie grassfed beef
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 each thinly sliced onion
10 slices small, sliced cheddar cheese
10 each halved, small burger buns
2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
10 slices sliced tomato
Ketchup or BBQ sauce to taste


To cook: Combine the beef with the mustard and some salt and pepper and mix to combine. Form into 10 patties and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Place 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a frying pan over a moderate heat and add the sliced onion. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until nicely colored and crispy, stirring every now and then. Preheat a chargrill to moderately high. Brush the patties with the remaining oil and cook for 2 ½ minutes. Turn over, place a cheese slice on top of each patty and cook for a further 2 ½ minutes or until cooked through. Set aside.

To serve:
Top the bottoms of the buns with the lettuce and tomato, then place a patty on top. Add the onions and a squirt of sauce. Place the top bun and serve.
