  • 1½ lbs. ground pork
  • 2.8 oz. can French fried onions (optional)
  • 1 packet Shallot Tarragon Compound Butter Mix

  • 2 tsp. olive oil

cooking methods

  • Grill


Serve tonight: Preheat grill to medium. In large bowl, combine first 4 ingredients. Form into 6 oval patties. Drizzle oil on onion.

Place patties and onions on grill. Grill, turning once, until internal temperature of burgers reaches 165°, about 10-12 minutes, and onions reach desired doneness. Salt and pepper to taste. Top burgers with Swiss cheese and divide onions evenly over burgers. Serve on slices of grilled marble rye bread. Makes 6 servings.

Serve with fresh vegetable sticks and dip. For a great dip, try preparing our Dill Pickle Dip Mix as directed on the package.

Freeze for later: Combine first 4 ingredients. Form into 6 oval patties and place between waxed paper in a gallon resealable freezer bag. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Grill as directed above.

Tip: Form into round patties and serve on hamburger buns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor! These were awesome and a great new twist to a traditional patty melt! I only added 1/2 of the 2.8 oz can of the french fried onion and it was amazing! Absolutely making this again!
