Hey, Okie friends and neighbors. I'm baaaaack! Come gather around the computer campfire for a few moments and keep a grill handy.

I'm sure many of you folks know about an Oklahoma tradition in El Reno where a group of people make the world's largest fried onion burger for the city's annual Burger Day each year in May. And as you know, the fried onion burger has its place in Oklahoma lore. I also know that there are many places throughout Oklahoma where you can get a fried onion burger. What is your favorite go-to place for a fried onion burger in Oklahoma? Should be a good thread even for our visitors, and I'm sure they'd love to find out, too.

So let's find out right here. Let 'er rip!

my first experience with an onion burger was when we visited yukon/mustang a couple of weeks ago to buy our house. i forget the name of the place, but the owner is an elvis impersonator. the onion burger was pretty good.

I love burgers and I love onions. Not being from OK, I've never heard of an onion burger. Is is meat w/onion or a pattie made out of just onion? Does anyone have a recipe?

It does consist of a grilled beef patty and topped with grilled onions on a toasted bun. Usually there would be pickles and mustard, but that would pretty much be it. Of course, you can choose any toppings if you wish, but what I just mentioned is the concept.

I have had a fried onion burger at a place in Ardmore that the locals love. It's called Cattle Rustlers. They are known for their steaks, but it's about the closest place to Dallas that I can get a fried onion burger.

Gee, I've been making hamburgers like that ever since I started cooking back in the Dark Ages! And now I find out it has it's own name - wow!

Here is another way.

Saute onions in a little butter in a large cast iron skillet.

Shape lean hamburger meat into balls.

Add meat to frying pan with onions and smash down with spatula into patties.

Cook onions and burgers until done. Onions should be brown, maybe burnt a little.

I would tend to cheat a little bit. If I made one myself, I prefer charbroiled beef patties over flat-grilled (to me, they taste better that way), but I would still saute the onions in a frying pan. I know that breaks tradition, but it would be worth trying.

Mustard, pickles, bun, done!

Any others of you have favorite places in OK that you can get that fried onion burger?? You can give me ideas on restaurants and towns/cities to visit in case I come back north.
