French Onion Burger


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 110 ½ ounce can French onion soup, or 1 ounce packet of dry French onion soup mix
  • 4 buns


  1. Place ground beef in a mixing bowl and add salt and pepper, mix well. Divide ground beef mixture into 4 equal parts and shape into patties.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the patties into the hot skillet and cook until well browned on each side. Remove the burgers and drain any excess fat from skillet.
  3. Pour the soup* into the skillet and bring to a boil. Add the burgers back to the skillet, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has cooked off. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the burgers reach a safe and savory internal temperature of 160 degrees.
  4. Remove burgers and serve on buns, using the soup as a topping or dipping sauce. You can also top with cheese (we like provolone with this burger) or your choice of condiments.


  • *If you’re using the dry mix in place of the canned soup, simply add the soup mix and about half the water listed on the label instructions. For example with Lipton dry onion soup mix, you would add one packet of the mix and 1 3/4 cups of water to the skillet.
