Burgers with Onion Relish

Burgers & Onion Relish

Tried these for the first time a couple of days ago and they really are out of this world! The burgers themselves are very simple but the key here is the onion relish which really sets off this recipe. Even though the relish contains a small amount of honey, it’s still well within even strict LCHF guidelines. Quick, easy and tasty, once you try this, I guarantee you will be hooked! 

For the onion relish/ marinade:

1 large red onion
3 tablespoons of honey
2 teaspoons of Himalayan salt
1/2 dl of red wine vinegar
1 dl of light olive oil
Black/green pepper


800 g of minced beef
Salt and pepper

Topping “extras”:

Whatever you want to use to make your hamburger more “authentic”. I used pickles, some crispy fried bacon, tomatoes, home-made mayo and Dijon mustard.


First slice the onion into thin rings and place into a bowl. Put all the other relish ingredients into a separate pan and heat, mixing thoroughly until it boils. Pour the mixture over the onions. Let the onions marinade in the fridge overnight, but the longer the better.

Mould the burgers by hand, into a fairly large size. Season with salt and pepper and fry them in a frying pan on both sides until you are happy with the consistency; rare, medium or well-done.

Serve burger(s) onto a plate and place individual onion rings & everything else on the top, leaving remaining onion rings to continue marinading in the fridge for later use. May also be served with kale chips.
