Onion Burgers with Creamy Dijon Sauce + Giveaway Hop!
We absolutely love onions at our Zoo, so Onion Burgers sounded (and tasted) like a great idea! As it turned out, it was better than we thought possible!
Fully disclosing that we are crazy here about onions and burgers as well! I think I’ve finally mastered the perfectly cooked hamburger, although I will forever practice just to see if I can make them any better! I haven’t quite mastered them on the grill, as my husband has (check out our Fall Grillin’ post), but I’ll keep working on it!
These onion burgers though. Geez! They turned out perfect and I can’t wait to make them again! In the meantime, how about I share the recipe!
Best Fat Content for Burgers
According to Taste of Home, the best fat content depends on how you want your burger cooked as well as how you’re cooking it. They recommend 80/20 for medium rare burgers, 70/30 for medium well hamburgers and 60/40 for well done hamburgers. The linked article is full of great information and I definitely recommend it!
- 1 lb hamburger meat (makes 2 burgers)
- 1 Vidalia Onion, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds (2 rounds per burger), then finely chop the remaining onion
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped
- 2 tbsp Duke’s Mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
Creamy Dijon Recipe
- In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard and a pinch of garlic. Season with pepper.
- Mix well.
- Heat a cast iron skillet over med-high heat. Once it’s hot (but not smoking), drizzle a little oil in the pan and add the chopped onion. Cook, stirring lightly, for 4 to 5 minutes.
- Turn off heat, add the onions to the mayo mixture and stir.
- Cover and refrigerate while you continue your work!
Onion Burgers Recipe
- Mix hamburger meat with 1 tsp fajita seasoning. Or, if you don’t have any, you can season it with pepper, fresh black and/or white pepper is best.
- Form patties and let it sit for a bit.
- Heat a cast iron skillet over med-high heat. Drizzle oil and place the onion rounds in pan. Cook until dark brown and tender. About 2-3 minutes per side. Then set them off to the side on a plate.
- Into the hot skillet place burgers. Don’t move them! Where they land, they stay!
- For medium or well done onion burgers, let the burger cook until blood comes through the top. The more blood, the more done the burger is going to be! When you flip, cook another 1 to 2 minutes.
- For rare onion burgers, flip them as soon as you begin seeing the blood coming out of the top. Cook an additional minute or two.
- Put mayo mixture on buns, add onion burger patties and onions. Enjoy!

I love a good sandwich. And so do my kids…seems like that’s all they eat. Lol
Same here! That’s one of the things I loved about the book, the fact that it opened up so many new possibilities!
Burgers are awesome! Love a good burger recipe to fry up on the grill
Oh my goodness! Me too! I absolutely love grilled burgers! They are definitely the best!
This recipe sounds amazing and I like that I can learn how to make the Dijon sauce and use it in other recipes as well!
We totally enjoyed it and I agree! I think it would be amazing on sandwiches for sure!
This burger recipe sounds amazing and tasty I love the ingredients.
Thank you! We were a huge fan, of the recipe and the ingredients!
They look so delicious! I love mine with provolone, mushrooms, onions and bacon.
those onion burgers sound great!
I like the onions and creamy Dijon sauce, but I would use a plant based ‘meat’ for the actual burger!
I’ve not tried plant based burgers. Not real thrilled at the thought of not having meat! I hope it’s as delicious with the plant based stuff!
Boy what I would give to have a grilling on the beach or in the mountains, I miss those days.
Thanks for hosting the #omhgww with us!
Have a great week!
I’m totally jealous as I’ve never had those days in the first place! We keep saying we’re going to go to the beach but there’s always a reason not to.

Thank you so much for the recipe! It looks delicious! I will be making these soon!
You are totally welcome! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did! We’re big on flavor at our Zoo!
We love to go to the beach at sunset for a sunset grilled dinner or Picnic.
Burgers is one of our family faves.
As much as I love our part of the country, this definitely makes me a little jealous! I can’t wait to finally make it down to a beach somewhere! We’ve been saying we were going to go for 15 years now and still haven’t made it! Hope your family loves the onion burger recipe! Enjoy!
Burgers are my favorite! I can eat them everyday!
LOL. We are a burger family too! Have you ever tried them on those big mushrooms instead of buns? They taste amazing that way, you simply grill or cook the mushrooms a little on both sides and make a ‘mushroom burger.’ The only issue with them is they are super juicy and therefore messy. But SO tasty!
Ooooh this book would be so helpful! And that burger looks amazing!
Thanks! It was delicious and the book has been fabulous!
We love having different type of hamburgers on the grill all year long. Always looking for delicious new recipes to try. Thanks for sharing yours!
That’s fantastic! We love grilled food but are far too lazy! haha. I hope you love it as much as we did!
my family would love this recipe! We enjoy burgers!
Burgers are definitely a fave here as well! I’m always trying to fix burgers, it’s the sides that get me. Laziness and the sides I guess. LOL
I love all the yummy seasonings used in this recipe. This is truly burger that will wake up your taste buds.
Oh yes! Me too! I love having strong flavors, especially onions and garlic.
The Happy Sandwich would be a great addition to my cookbook collection. Sandwiches are the perfect choice for summer dining. I enjoy onion burgers with a slice of Swiss cheese. I will definitely try the Creamy Dijon Recipe on my next burger.
I love all the new varieties in the cookbook and can’t wait to try them out! I hope you love the burger recipe! It’s delicious!
This certainly has my attention! I usually just add onion soup mix to my burgers for an onion flavor.
Oh, girl! If you like the onion soup you’ll definitely love this one! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts after you try it out!
I love exciting new twists on burgers it is my favorite all around meat product love doing change ups on a great staple burger the ground chuck or ground round so meat is very lean and excellent
Absolutely! Have you ever tried making them on mushrooms instead of buns? It’s super messy but oh so tasty!
I love that my husband is the one in charge of cooking the burgers
LOL. These days my husband doesn’t have time to cook anything. I miss his cooking!
The Onion Burger sounds delicious, and I appreciate the information about the best fat content for burgers. Great recipe and review!
Glad you found it helpful! I always feel like if I’m wondering about something, someone else might be too! Bon appetite!
The cooking burgers part sounds good to me. 🙂
