Recipe: Gluten Free Burger with Caramelized Onions

This Burger Friday is a sweet, creamy, spicy and savory burger. I loved how all the flavors came together. Think spicy mayo, burger, hot sauce, goat cheese, and caramelized onions. All that in a gluten free bun, plus a creamy coleslaw on the side. What could be more summertime than this?

This burger may seem like a lot of work once you are done making all the sauces for it, but realize you can use them for other burgers. You will be making homemade ketchup for the spicy mayo. You will be making caramelized onions that you stirred slowly for 20 minutes. You will be making creamy coleslaw as a side. Yes, all this takes sometime, but I will guarantee it is worth it once you take your first bite.

Here are all the recipes for this burger
