French Onion Sliders

Raise your hand if you like French Onion Dip!

Want it on a burger?

Of course you do –


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.



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 depth 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.)


Here’s your printable-

French Onion Dip Burgers


  • 1 packet french onion soup mix
  • 1 16 oz container sour cream
  • 1 large Vidalia or yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 lb ground round
  • 1 tbsp seasoned salt
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 package Hamburger buns
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • Bibb, Green or Red leaf lettuce, washed and torn
  • 8 oz. Havarti cheese, sliced (or the melty cheese of your choice)
  • 3 tbsp salted butter, melted


  • To make French onion dip, combine soup mix and sour cream in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.
  • Slice the onion into thin rings.
  • Heat the olive oil over medium heat, add the onion rings and sprinkle with salt. Saute until translucent; about 10 minutes.
  • Mix together the ground round, salt and Worcestershire and form into 4 patties and grill over medium high heat until done the way you like them.
  • While the burgers are cooking, preheat oven to 425. Brush both sides of the buns with melted butter and toast in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until the buns are slightly brown.
  • Add cheese slices and cover until melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  • To assemble, spread French onion dip on the bun bottoms. Add a burger patty, caramelized onions and lettuce.
  • Add the top bun and serve.
