French Cheeseburger ~ Cheeseburger a la Français

French Cheeseburger
Cheeseburger a la Français

Sweet, slow cooked onions complete this delicious burger. Use large, crusty rolls - split, buttered and toasted.

4 hot broiled Beef Patties
1/4 tsp dry basil
4 slices of Swiss Cheese
4 Crusty rolls
slow - cooked onions, hot or reheated
Dijon mustard

While beef patties are still on rack, sprinkle each with basil, then top with cheese. Cut rolls in half and place on rack alongside patties. Broil until rolls are toasted and cheese is melted. Spread rolls with butter, put a patty into each, and top equally with slow-cooked onions. Serve with mustard. Makes 4 servings.

Slow cooked onions with crème fraîche

Enjoy these soft golden onions as a vegetable side dish, or use them as a topping for other vegetables.

2 Tablespoons butter
3 large onions, sliced and separated into rings
3/4 cup of Crème Fraiche or sour cream

In a wide frying pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until onions are soft and golden (about 20 minutes). Season with salt to taste. If made ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days; reheat to serve. If desired, stir in Crème Fraiche. Makes 4 servings.


  1. Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely try it out.

  2. Certainly looks much nicer than the "ordinary" ones (no names)! I also do my own; something similar! :-)
