Burgers were very juicy. Used dry soup mix to make the liquid equivalent. I personally like more flavor with seasonings on my burgers but the kids loved them as is. Overall as I said earlier a very good juicy burger. Read More

We make these burgers a lot during the summer. A lot. What makes them even better is melted swiss and carmelized onions and mushrooms. When we make them the whole neighborhood comes to check them out. They just HAVE to know what smells so good! Read More

Very good tasting burgers! I used ground sirloin for this and sprinkled them with a little krazy salt then followed directions. I was skeptical how this could be any good with barely any ingredients. This was similar to the French Dip sandwich with the au jus like Arby's serves only better! I served this on onion buns these were soooo tasty. Read More

I found this on the soup can and my husband loves it! I always make sauteed onions and mushrooms (add a little of the soup to this for extra flavor) and I use ground turkey! It's awesome!!! Read More

Here is my version: 2# ground beer 2 t minced garlic 2 T Worcestershire sauce 1 large onion sliced 1 can French onion soup 1-2 t wasabi (optional) 6 slices Monterrey or Pepper Jack 6 hamburger rolls Mix all together; shape into patties. Heat non-stick skillet to high. Brown one side of patties then flip reduce heat to medium-low add onion cover pan. Stir onions occasionally cook until burgers are cooked though and onions are golden. Add soup raise heat til simmers simmer for 5 minutes. Broil buns with cheese. Read More

I thought it was very tasty and easy to make as well. I fried some onions prior to cooking the hamburgers and then added them to the dry onion soup mix. My husband didn't care for these at all because he felt that dipping the hamburger bun in the sauce made it soggy and he doesn't like that texture. But I loved it and thought it made a great midweek meal. Read More

Very good - produces a tasty juicy burger. You could really do this with any liquid. beef broth and red wine beef broth and teriyaki etc. I still like grilling outdoors but this is the only way I will ever make them inside. Read More
