1 small onion (1/2 sliced into rings, 1/2 diced)

1 pound meatloaf mix (ground pork, beef and veal) or ground turkey

1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

1/2 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko)

1 large egg

1 teaspoon sweet or smoked paprika

1/3 cup ketchup

1/3 cup duck sauce

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

4 potato buns or other rolls, split

Lettuce, sliced tomato and pickle slices, for topping

Sweet potato chips, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat a grill to medium high. Soak the onion rings in a bowl of cold water. Meanwhile, combine the meatloaf mix with the diced onion, parsley, breadcrumbs, egg, paprika, 1 tablespoon each ketchup and duck sauce, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Gently form into four 1-inch-thick patties; make an indentation in the center of each.
  2. Brush the patties with the olive oil and grill until marked on the bottom, about 6 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the remaining ketchup and duck sauce in a small bowl for brushing; set aside a few tablespoons. Turn the patties, brush with the ketchup mixture and continue grilling until cooked through, about 5 more minutes. Toast the buns, if desired.
  3. Spread the buns with the reserved ketchup mixture. Drain the onion rings. Serve the patties on the buns; top with the onion, lettuce, tomato and pickles. Serve with sweet potato chips, if desired.
