Onion Strings-Chipolte-Cheeseburger

Wow, this burger is awesome.  Love the different flavors & textures that run throughout this burger.  I love the onion rings on it.  That little crunch makes it so good.  This recipe looks like there are a lot of steps, but there really isn't.  It's well worth the couple extra steps it does take to make this awesome burger.

(serves 4)

*1 pound lean ground beef
*4 slices of cheese (whatever is your favorite)
*2 tablespoons yellow onion, chopped fine
*1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
*1 teaspoon olive oil
*1 garlic glove, minced
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/2 teaspoon black pepper
*vegetable oil, enough to cook onions in (1 to 2 cups)
*4-6 teaspoons chipotle sauce
*lettuce (optional)
*dill pickles, sliced (optional)
*4 hamburger buns (I use whole wheat)

~In a medium bowl, mix ground beef,  2 tablespoons finely chopped onion, olive oil, worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt & black pepper.
~Make into 4 equal patties.
~Place on a plate and cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
~Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
~Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
~Place a wire rack on top of foil
~Place burgers on wire rack.
~Bake 8-10 minutes or until don as you like them.

 -How to assemble burgers-
~I like to toast the buns in the oven the last 2 minutes of the burger cooking.
~Place toasted buns on a plate.
~Spread chipotle sauce over bottom side of the top bun.
~Place lettuce on bottom half of bun.
~Place hot burger over lettuce.
~Place a slice of cheese over burger.
~Place pickles over burger.
~Place onion strings over pickles.
~Cover with top bun and enjoy.
