Gather your materials.
You will need a cutting board, a sharp knife, and an onion. Choose a cutting board that is large enough to give you plenty of space to work. A smaller board will do in a pinch, but it will be more difficult to Cut the onion into uniform pieces.
It is also important to use a sharp knife. A dull knife will make it difficult to Cut the onion into uniform pieces and could potentially be dangerous. If you are not comfortable using a sharp knife, you can use a food processor or a mandoline slicer.
You will need a sharp knife, a cutting board, and an onion.
First, cut the onion in half, then peel the skin off. Next, cut off the root end and the stem. Now you will need to cut the onion in half again. You should have four pieces of onion now.
Next, start slicing the onion in half moons. To do this, make lengthwise cuts, angling your knife so that the slices are not too thick or too thin. Once you have finished slicing, you can start chopping the onion if you want smaller pieces.
If you are making burgers, it is best to chop the onion into small pieces so that it will cook evenly and not overpower the burger flavor. To do this, first make lengthwise cuts angling your knife as before. Then turn the onion so that it is pointing towards you and chop downwards with a chopping motion.
Do not forget to wash your hands thoroughly after cutting onions!
Cut off one end of the onion and peel it.
Cut off one end of the onion and peel it. Cut the onion in half, then slice it in half again. Then, cut the onion into thin slices. To make burgers, you will need about 1/2 cup of chopped onions per pound of ground beef.
Cut the onion in half.
Peel off the skin of the onion. Cut the onion in half, then slice it in half again. You should now have four quarters of an onion. Take one quarter and slice it thinly, as if you were cutting it for a salad. These will be your burger onions. The other three quarters can be diced and used as toppings or saved for another use.
Slice the onion.
To cut an onion for burgers, start by slicing the onion in half from the root end to the top. Then, peel off the skin and discard it. Next, cut off the root end of the onion and discarding it. Finally, cut the onion into thin slices by slicing it length-wise.
Dice the onion.
Start by cutting off one end of the onion and peel it so that the edible layer is exposed. Cut the onion in half so that the uncut end from before is divided in two, then slice the onion the long way. Now it’s time to start dicing the onion. Make horizontal cuts perpendicular to the ones you just made. Be sure not to cut too deeply, or else the diced onion will start falling apart. Finally, make vertical cuts in order to achieve perfectly diced onions.
