Tonight I made one of my families favorite recipes, french onion burgers. I've been making these burgers for a couple years now and it's a crowd pleaser EVERY time I make them.
Originally, the inspiration for these came from the Campbell's Kitchen website. The first time I made them I went by their recipe and quickly decided that I could make them 100 times better by using my own ingredients instead of a can of Campbell's condensed french onion soup, which is ridiculously salty and the onions in it have the consistency of jelly. Yuck!
- 1 1/2 lbs. ground chuck
- 4 hamburger buns
- 1 large onion
- 1 cup beef broth
- 4 slices provolone mozzarella cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Toast buns in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, season and shape burger into four patties, about 6 oz. each and chop up onions into strips.
Preheat a skillet on medium high and sear the patties on all sides. When browned, add onions and broth and continue to cook on medium high.
Cook until burgers are done and remove them from the skillet and add the cheese slices.
Reduce broth and further soften the onions. Make sure to get all the goodness on the bottom of the pan while you do this.
When the onions are done place evenly on top on the burgers.
Add any desired condiments. Mayo works good with this recipe but it's such a juicy burger that nothing is really needed... except lots of napkins because this is a messy one :)
