Fried Onions
  • 1 Medium Sweet Onion (peeled, halved, and sliced)
  • 1 CUP Flour
  • 1 TBSP Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 CUP Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 CUP Pork Panko
  • 1 GAL Peanut Oil (for frying)


            • 3 Medium-Size Mixing Bowls
            • Bread Knife
            • Grill
            • Deep Fryer
            • Spatula
            • 2 Baking Sheets
            • Wire Rack
            • Instant Read Thermometer
            • Paper Towels

            FIRST STEP

            Take the Fullblood Wagyu beef burger patties out of the freezer, and place them in the refrigerator 24 hours before starting this recipe.


            Preheat your oven to 400°.

            Meanwhile, place a wire rack on a baking sheet.

            Place 6 pieces of bacon across the wire rack, leaving space between each piece of bacon.

            Once the oven is heated, place the baking sheet in the oven.

            Cook the bacon for about 25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.

            Place the cooked bacon on a plate lined with paper towels until ready to use.

            NOTE: Before placing the bacon on the Wagyu beef cheeseburgers, cut each piece of bacon in half. This allows the bacon to fit better on the burgers.


            Pour the peanut oil into a deep fryer over high heat.

            Allow the oil to heat (covered if possible) until the temperature registers 350°F.

            In mixing bowl number one, add the flour and Cajun seasoning. Stir to combine.

            In mixing bowl number two, add the milk and egg. Stir to combine.

            In mixing bowl number three, add the Pork Panko.

            Take the sliced onions, and dredge them in the flour mixture (bowl number one) until well coated.

            Then, drop the flour-coated onions into the milk and egg mixture (bowl number two).

            Lastly, place the onions in the Pork Panko (bowl number three) until they are thoroughly coated.

            Once the deep fryer has reached 350°F, add the onions.

            Fry for 45-60 seconds or until the onions begin to rise to the surface and turn a golden-brown color.

            Set the fried onion rings aside on a plate lined with paper towels. Reserve.


            Preheat your grill to high.

            Take the Wagyu beef burger patties out of the packaging, and place them on a baking sheet.

            Season the Wagyu beef patties with the BBQ rub of your choice.

            Once the grill is heated, place the seasoned Wagyu beef patties on the grill.

            Allow the patties to cook for 5-6 minutes.

            Then, flip the patties over. Add a slice of White American cheese to each patty.

            Allow the Wagyu beef patties to continue cooking for another 5-6 minutes or until the patties register a minimum of 155°F.

            Once cooked, remove the cheese-topped patties from the grill, and set them aside on a plate.

            FINAL STEPS

            Place your egg knot bottom buns on one plate and top buns on another.

            Slather each bottom bun with BBQ sauce. Use a spoon to spread the sauce over the entire surface.

            Next, add a cheese-topped Wagyu beef patty to each bottom bun.

            Top each patty with crispy bacon and a handful of fried onions.

            Finish each burger by adding a few more spoonfuls of BBQ sauce and the top bun.

            Serve your Wagyu beef cheeseburgers with the sides of your choice, and enjoy!
