Caramelized Onion Sirloin Steak Burgers Stuffed with Brie

Homemade burgers are always best.  Try this delicious, lean burger with the addition of delectable caramelized onions and brie.

1. Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking oil, add the vegetable oil and place over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes, just until soft. Reduce the heat to low, add the sugar and continue cooking for 10 minutes, until browned and caramelized. Set aside.

2. To make the burgers, combine the meat, green onion, breadcrumbs, barbecue sauce, garlic, salt, pepper, egg and basil in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly and shape into 5 burgers. Form a pocket in each burger and stuff evenly with the diced brie. Make sure the beef encloses the cheese completely.

3. Preheat a barbecue or indoor grill and spray with cooking oil. Cook the burgers for about 4 minutes per side, or until no longer pink in the center. Mound the onions on top of each serving and garnish with extra brie if using.
