1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Combine all seasonings with the ground beef in large mixing bowl – cover and refrigerate 1 hour. Preheat grill to medium high temperature. Form refrigerated patties into 12 “flat” patties. Place 1 slice of cheese onto the center of 6 patties. Top each with another patty and pinch edges together to form sealed “pockets”. Grill 8 minutes on each side. During the last 8 minutes brush the insides of the onion buns with melted butter and “grill” to toast. Place a cooked bun onto each and top with a thin slice of red onion.
