French Onion Sliders

Raise your hand if you like French Onion Dip!

Want it on a burger?

Of course you do – IMGP8893 Don’t kill me for posting another slider recipe. I’m not obsessed.¬†Ok, well maybe I can’t promise that, but I’m not obsessed. Maybe I am a little when it comes to making versatile and extremely crazy¬†untraditional burgers. But it comes in waves. I swear the next post will consist of a salad, chicken, or a maybe a dessert. Or something else. I think.

We’ll see – I have so many things in mind.

IMGP8846 I grew up eating French onion dip. It was always a go to for summer cookouts and even holiday parties. I’ve tried to make it homemade, but I can’t get close enough to depthness of flavor that the onion soup mix has. I know – I’m sure it’s an over abundance of salt. I’ll keep trying.

These sliders are so deliciously onion-y, and the Havarti cheese is PERFECT. I think Muenster would work, too. We fell in love with Muenster cheese about three years ago and have been putting it on everything since. It’s a beautiful cheese.

In the instructions below I said to add onion dip to the bottom bun, but feel free to add the onion dip to the top of the bun as well. (I did.)
