French Onion Sliders


Don’t kill me for posting another slider recipe. 

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, y’all.

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; it’s so perfectly melty.


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.)

French Onion Sliders

Yield: 8 Sliders
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 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 slider buns or dinner rolls, split
  • 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


Make the 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 8 slider patties and grill over medium 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.
