Hamburger with confit onion in pita bread. Recipe
I have used our special The best hamburgers, as the perfect excuse to give us a little tribute at home and prepare a few hamburgers with onion confit in pita bread. The photo does not do it too much justice, but this is the hamburger that made the way of seeing and preparing hamburgers at home changed. From then on they stopped being that Sunday night dish, which we used to prepare in a "plis-plas", when nobody wanted to cook, and they became an important dish that we prepare only and exclusively when we have time and desire to cook.
4 pita breads, 2 large onions, 600 grams of ground beef, 4 slices of cheddar cheese, 1 or 2 raf tomatoes, 4 thin slices of bacon and salt.
How to make hamburgers with onion confit in pita bread
We peel the onion, cut it in half and cut it with a feather. We put a large frying pan on a very low heat and add a lot of oil, introduce the onion and let it confit very slowly, this process depending on the temperature of the oil, and the amount of onion that we are confining, can take from 45 minutes to several hours.
Lightly salt the minced beef, stir it and separate 4 equal portions. We shape each portion and roast them in a pan or griddle, over low heat, until we have it to the point that we like the most. A few minutes before removing the hamburger from the heat, we put a slice of cheese on top.
While in another pan without oil, cook the bacon slices, until they are crisp. We booked. We wash and cut into slices
We toast the pita breads in the toaster, open them on one side and assemble our burgers.
Processing time | 20 minutes + confit

We assemble our hamburgers with confit onion in pita bread opening the pita bread on one side, inside the bread we put one or two tomato slices, on the tomato the burger with the cheese, on the cheese the bacon slice folded in half and on top of all a good spoonful of confit onion.
