I love it when a recipe is born out of necessity, and the Oklahoma burger is exactly that. During the great depression, meat became very expensive. So Ross Davis, the patron of 'The Hamburger Inn' in El Reno, Oklahoma started adding cheap onions to his diner style burgers, which were smash burgers. He'd put a small patty of beef on the griddle and a stack of shredded onion on top of the patty. When squished together the beef and onion complemented each other so well that it wasn't long before word spread and other El Reno restaurants followed suit. A legend was born!
