Logan County Burger Busts Glass House

Logan County Burger

Inspired by Frank Bruni’s article in the March 11th, 2010 New York Times Magazine we decided to replicate Katie Lee’s logan county burger. This burger won the popular vote at the Burger Bash at the New York Wine & Food Festival with a few grumblings of objection. Was this in fact a burger or a patty melt?

Everyone here agreed that this was a great sandwich, but not a true burger.

Recipe after the jump.

Recipe:

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef (85 percent lean)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 medium yellow onion, half grated, the other half thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 slices white bread
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
12 slices American cheese, optional

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the beef, egg, grated onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix until combined.
  2. Form into thin patties.
  3. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
  4. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers about 3 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. Drain the grease from the skillet.
  5. In the same skillet, place six slices of bread, butter side down. Top each with a slice of cheese, if desired, some onions and a burger. Top with remaining slices of cheese, if using, and bread, butter side up.
  6. Cook each sandwich until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
  7. Serve with mustard, ketchup, pickles, or any other desired hamburger toppings.
