Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, or preheat a gas grill to medium high. To make the patties, combine the beef, egg, seasoning, onion and chips in large bowl. Mix well. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form the portions into patties. When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, until done to preference, 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium. During the final minute of grilling, place cheese slices on top of patties. When the patties are cooked, remove from the grill. Place the bread slices on the outer edges of the grill rack to warm. To assemble the burgers, place patty on top of bread slice. On each patty, place a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, and sour cream if desired. Add bread top and serve. Makes 6 burgers.
