Summertime is burger time! These French onion soup chicken burgers are so juicy and flavorful with caramelized onions and smoked gruyere for toppings. —Leigh Suznovich

What You'll Need
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon dried French onion soup mix
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 6 slices smoked gruyere cheese
  • 6 toasted hamburger buns
  1. First, caramelize the onions. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat, then add the onions. Turn the heat to medium and let the onions cook for 8-10 minutes. Every couple of minutes, add a tablespoon of water to keep the bottom from burning the onions. Stir them often and let the onions become a lovely golden brown color. Set them aside when they are done. Meanwhile, make the burger patties. Combine the ground chicken, onion soup mix, Dijon, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl and work it all together thoroughly with clean hands. Either have your grill heated up or heat an indoor electric griddle to 375. Form the mixture you made into 6 equal patties.
  2. Cook the burgers for 5 minutes on each side to get a nice crust on the outside and cook the chicken all the way through. On the second side, add the cheese and cover the burgers so that it melts nicely. When the burgers are done, place them on the toasted buns and top them all with a generous heap of the caramelized onions. Finish with ketchup, HP sauce, mayo, or mustard, whichever you like. Serve immediately with your favorite sides and enjoy!!

Reminds me of my family thinking we were so fancy when Mom put onion soup mix in the burgers back in the 80's. This is also good with ground turkey and it's nice in meatball form.
