Memorial Day Recipes: Katie Lee's Burgers

Katie Lee's burgers are so special that they have two names. The first, Logan County, for her home state of West Virginia, and the second, award-winning, because, well, they've been recognized for their yumminess!

The recipe is pretty straightforward (and doesn't require a grill), though some yellow onion and grilled bread put this all-American favorite over the edge.

Logan County Burger

Serves 6
• 1 lb. ground beef (85% lean)
• 1 large egg, lightly beaten
• 1 medium yellow onion, half grated, the other half thinly sliced
• ¼ tsp. garlic powder
• 1 tsp. kosher salt
• 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
• 12 slices white bread
• 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
• 12 slices American cheese

1. In a bowl, combine beef, egg, grated onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Form thin patties. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers about 3 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Drain grease from the skillet.
3. In the same skillet, place six slices of bread, butter side down. Top each with a slice of cheese, some onions and a burger. Top with remaining slices of cheese and bread, butter side up. Cook each sandwich until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
