Easy French Onion Soup-Style Burger Recipe

It's not quite the ultimate French Onion Soup Burger, but it's still something we're proud of as part of our Make Your Own Epic Burger Adventure.


  • ½ stick butter (4 tablespoons)
  • 3 onions, peeled and sliced thinly
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 Butter-Basted Burgers
  • 4 thick slices of gruyère
  • 1 baguette, sliced into 4-inch-wide cuts, then halved


In a large sauté pan, heat the butter over high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, until browned. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm. Meanwhile, lay the cheese slices on the bottom half of the 4 baguette slices and toast in a toaster oven or a broiler until the cheese is melted, keep warm.

Cook the Butter-Basted Burgers. Place the burgers on each of the remaining baguette halves, top with the onions and the melted cheese and bread slice. Enjoy!

Easy French Cooking Tip

French cuisine is renowned for slow-cooked sauces, however a quick pan sauce will do just as well; after sautéing a piece of meat or fish, remove it from the pan, deglaze with brandy or wine, finish with a touch of butter or cream and voilà!
