Make basil mayo and prepare ingredients
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Rinse all produce. Roughly chop basil leaves, discarding stems, and place in a small bowl. Add mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon water, and ¼ teaspoon salt; whisk to combine. Slice buns open horizontally, if they arrived whole. Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice. Mince garlic.
Bake potato chips
Thinly slice potato crosswise into rounds, place on a baking sheet, and toss with paprika, 1 tablespoon olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired. Arrange in a single layer, spacing apart, and bake until golden brown and crispy, 18-20 minutes.
While potato chips bake, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until light brown and softened, about 6 minutes. Add ¼ cup water and cook, stirring, until onion is golden and water has evaporated, 4-5 minutes more. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt, transfer to a plate, and cover with foil to keep warm. Reserve pan, off heat, for Step 5.
While onion cooks, in a medium bowl, combine Worcestershire, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired. Pat beef dry with paper towel and add to bowl. Using your hands, mix well, then form into 2 equal patties, about 1 inch thick. Using your thumb, create a dimple on top of each.
Return pan from onion to medium-high heat with 1 teaspoon olive oil. When oil is shimmering, add burgers and sear, without flipping, until browned on bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip, top with white Cheddar, cover pan, and continue searing until cheese is melted and burgers are medium rare, 3-4 minutes more. Remove pan from heat.
Toast buns and plate cheeseburgers
Once baked, divide paprika potato chips between serving plates. Arrange buns cut-side down on sheet and bake until toasted, 2-3 minutes. Add bun bottoms to plates with chips and top with white Cheddar cheeseburgers, then caramelized onion, then bun tops. Serve basil mayo alongside for dipping. Dig in!
