The North Jersey Onion Burger and home-made mac-and-cheese topped with buttered bread crumbs, with brownies for dessert. Nom nom nom!
If you can’t watch video, here is the text version of the burger recipe.
Happy New Year, kids.
UPDATE: It’s useful to provide the brownies recipe.
4 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 stick of butter (1/4 lb)
2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 to 3 cups chopped walnuts
Preat oven to 350F
Line 9×13 pan with waxed paper
Melt chocolate squares together with butter. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat eggs together with sugar and salt. Mix in chocolate/butter mixture and vanilla, then flour and nuts. Spread into lined pan, then bake for 30 minutes. Toothpick should come out not completely clean. Let brownies cool in the pan for 20 minutes before lifting out and cutting into pieces.
I like to bag them up two to a bag and freeze them, because frozen brownies nom!

2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
Whipped cream (optional)
Toasted almonds, walnuts or pecans (optional)
Combine first 4 ingredients, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and salt in a medium saucepan. Combine milk and slightly beaten egg yolks; mix into dry ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. When mixture comes to a boil, cook one more minute, continuing to stir constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla and unsweetened chocolate
Pour into 4 individual serving dishes. Serve warm or chilled; top with whipped cream and nuts, if desired. Place plastic wrap directly onto top surface of pudding to prevent skin from forming while it cools.
Serves 4. To make enough for only two (but, really, why would you want to?) simply halve the stated amounts.
