Do you love Fontina cheese like I do? I think it’s probably the most perfect cheese ever made; it melts so.damn.perfectly. I find myself hoarding it when I buy it; like shoving it in the way, way back of the cheese drawer in the fridge so it’s really hard to see. That’s so immature of me. I have a feeling no one in this house truly cherishes it like I do, but if they did they would put it on everything. I wouldn’t put it past them throwing together a grilled cheese with half a block of it and not even blinking an eye. I hope I never witness that.
Let me just say that this isn’t a burger with french onion soup mix added to some ground round. And, no, that isn’t a biscuit that it’s sitting on. I know it looks like it, but it’s a pretzel bun.
Now, before I start, please don’t think I’m knocking dried french onion soup mix because I love that shit. I always keep a box of it in my pantry. I add it to ground beef, mix it with beef broth for roasts, make dips out of it, etc. But, I’m just sayin’…this burger ain’t your typical burger. First things first. I made a batch of french onion soup last week that wrecked my world thanks to one of my besty besties, Joanna. We have a never ending email/text back and forth linking eachother to our latest recipes/blogs/foodwhatever. She sent me the soup recipe that she made that her family fell in love with. I don’t doubt this girl; she’s the ultimate foodie. I made it, obviously, and I ate so freakin’ much that night that I felt like a big bloated fat ass pig. Hence, no pictures; but I will make it again and post it soon. It’s definitely one of those things that I crave when it’s cold as shit outside and I want some serious comfort food. It’s just the most beautiful, comforting soup ever.
Since I was so in love with the soup and had it on my mind for a couple of days, I couldn’t help but think of more deliciousness I could do with it. It really, really is THAT good.
