In a medium bowl, mix 1/2 pound ground meat, 1/4 tsp salt, pinch of black pepper and reserved one Tbsp grated onion. Mix just till well combined.
Heat an oversized non-stick pan over medium heat with 2-3 Tbsp oil. Once oil is hot, add potato mixture one Tbsp at a time, flattening out the top with the rear of your spoon.
Instantly top every cake with a meat patty and cover each with another Tablespoon of potato mixture.
Saute four minutes per aspect or till cooked through and golden brown.
