This burger is definitely one you want to put on your list to make. And to make SOON. It’s simple (kinda), the flavors are straightforward and you’ll want to keep eating after you’re already full. It’s a cravable, hearty burger. I’m so in love with it, and I’m sure you will be too…
Do you love Fontina cheese like I do? I think it’s probably the most perfect cheese ever made; it melts so.damn.perfectly. Do you like it on a burger?
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.
Make the 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 each other to our latest recipes/blogs/food whatever.
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, and knows her stuff. 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.
For the soup, this is the recipe I loosely went by. I love her.
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.
So, I made my favorite pretzel dough recipe for some hearty buns and voilà – a French Onion Soup Burger.
