French Onion Burger
  • For the Onions:
  • 3 large yellow onions
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 beef bullion cubes
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • For the Burger:
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 pkg. lipton onion soup mix
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • salt & pepper
  • For the toppings:
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • dill pickle slices
  • 8 slices cheese (swiss or american)
  • classic potato chips (regular or ruffled)
  • Mayonnaise
  • BBQ Sauce
  1. Thinly slice your onions. In a large saucepan, melt your butter over medium-high heat. Add your onions to the pan and stir them around. Cover the pan with the lid placed at an angle so that some of the steam can escape. Stir the onions every few minutes while they cook. You want to get a nice golden color. They should cook about 15 minutes.
  2. While the onions are cooking, add your ground beef to a large bowl and pour the onion soup mixes in. Add the worcestershire sauce, eggs & salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix it thoroughly. Form 8 beef patties and cook on the grill until done to your preference. If you like your bun toasted, butter and toast them as well (we do!)
  3. While your beef is grilling, mix the water and bullion together and pour over the golden onions. Turn up the heat to high and let the onions simmer until most of the liquid has been cooked out. Remove front he heat and stir in the sour cream.
  4. When the beef is almost done, add the cheese on top to melt.
  5. Build your burger in this order: Bun, mayo, BBQ sauce, beef patty (with melted cheese) onions, pickles, chips, and more mayo and BBQ sauce on top bun if desired.
I like the refrigerated sliced pickles best. They are more crisp than others.
