Thinly slice onions, Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add butter. Once melted, add onions and a pinch of Backyard. Stir to combine. Cook, stirring often for 10-15 minutes, until caramelized.
Heat large cast iron skillet or grill griddle to medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes. While heating, mix burger and Backyard blend. Divide mixture into four 1/4 lb burgers.
Once your skillet or griddle is hot quickly brush with oil and place half of butter on the hot surface.
