Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Line Sheet Pan with Sheet Pan Liner.  
  2. Thinly slice onion into strips and place in Square Steamer with butter. Microwave, uncovered, on high 16 min, stirring halfway.  
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine ground beef with seasoning. Form into six patties and arrange on pan.  
  4. Bake 14 min. Top each patty with a cheese slice; bake additional 2 min, or until burgers are cooked through and reach an internal temperature of 160° F. 
  5. Split and toast buns, if desired. Spread 1 tsp aioli on each bottom bun; top each with 14 cup arugula, patty, and caramelized onions. 
Tips

Fire up the grill! During the warmer months, grill patties over medium-high heat with lid closed, 5–7 min per side, or until cooked. Add cheese slices for the last minute of cooking.  

This recipe is high in sodium. If following the Epic Life program, choose lower sodium options for your other meals during the day.  

Slash cooking time even more! Toss onions with 14 tsp baking soda. Microwave, uncovered, on high 10–12 min. The baking soda creates a chemical reaction that helps the onions brown faster.

Serve with 2 cups leafy greens with a squeeze of lemon juice.
