Onion Ring Burger with Yogurt Sriracha Sauce

I received a lovely surprise as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program recently when they sent me an apron, pot-holder and a coupon to try Alexia Foods.  I was excited heading to the frozen section of my grocery store to find an Alexia brand product to try out. I looked over all the tempting choices when I saw them.... onion rings.   I love onion rings, but I only order them if I go to restaurants because most frozen onion rings are just not that good (most don't even have real onions).  These Alexia brand onion rings are fantastic.   Alexia onion rings are made with real Spanish onions, seasoning and panko bread crumbs then frozen for our convenience.  They only took a few minutes in the oven and I was thrilled that I finally had restaurant quality real onion rings at home.  I decided to put them on top of my burger and dress them with my homemade yogurt sriracha sauce. I also ate them as my side dish because when you meet a good onion ring you don't want to just have one. :)  The kicker is my son who dislikes onions in his food with a passion ate some of these onion rings and said they were really good. Say what?  These Alexia Onion Rings scored big in our family so when you find a winner you stick to it. 

Note: this quick masala spiced chicken burger is the burger I used in my onion ring burger. You can use any ground meat you prefer and season it as you wish because topping it with the onion rings is best part.

 Ingredients for my burger:
Step 1: prepare Alexia onion rings per package instructions
For Spicy burger
1lb of ground chicken or turkey
1Tbs of hamburger seasoning
1Tbs of parsley flakes
red chili flakes to taste
1/2 Tbs of garam masala
salt and black and pepper taste

Ingredients for Spicy Yogurt Sriracha Sauce:
1/2 cup of plain low-fat yogurt
2-3 Tbs of sriracha sauce (to taste)
2 Tbs of ketchup
1-2 tsp of  vinegar (to taste)
2Tbs of pickle relish(to taste)
salt and black pepper to taste
Mix well. Makes enough for 4 burgers and dipping the onion rings

Mix all the burger ingredients (except onion rings) and make 4 large burger patties. Then fry burgers on both sides until cooked through. 

Serve on toasted hamburger bun with onion rings and sriracha sauce.  Garnish with lettuce and tomatoes if you desire.  Enjoy.
