French Onion Pork Burgers

We typically are beef people…yes, I said it. Now, in my defense, I grew up around cattle and my dad has pretty much worked with cattle in some respect or another almost my entire life! Chicken probably comes next in our arsenal of meat with Pork bringing up the rear. Now, that doesn’t mean we don’t like pork, it just typically isn’t at the top of our list.

That being said, we have gone through our half beef faster this year than normal (I blame boys growing at an exponential rate and eating more)! So, we’ve been forced to eat other meat and try new things to make things stretch until late summer/early fall when we get our next half. So..enter pork! When friends of ours gifted us with some pork, I decided to try a new recipe. I had tried a similar recipe with ground beef quite a few years ago, but decided to give my ground pork a spinoff of that recipe.

Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1lb. ground pork
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • ¼ c. water
  • ¼ c. Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ c. bread crumbs
  • swiss cheese slices
  • buns & condiments
  1. Begin by dissolving the soup mix in the water and Worcestershire Sauce
  2. work the mix into the ground pork and finally adding the bread crumbs.
  3. Form into 4 equal patties and grill to your liking.
  4. Top with swiss cheese right before removing from the grill and garnish.

A few cooks notes: I toasted and buttered my buns and topped with pickles!  Becuase of the big flavor, seasoning is not needed and they are extra juicy, so no need for sauce!  This recipe is easy to throw together and cook and great for a summertime BBQ!  T is a tough critic and he really enjoyed these.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did, we’ll definitely be making these again!




  1. It’s funny that you mention your 1/2 cow. My husband and I just purchased I think a 1/3 cow for the first time. Got it all loaded into the freezer this morning. I’m planning a blog post titled “7 days of beef” as we learn how to use our beef without getting tired of it. Your pork burger looks great, and I’m happy to see the Recipe Card plug-in in use. I just installed that as well.
