Serves: 6 Regular-Sized Burgers


  • 1 to 2 Onions, sliced
  • 6 Slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 Ounce dry onion soup mix
  • 1 to 2 Pounds ground beef
  • 1 Tablespoon Triple Cream Sherry
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 Large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ Cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 Cup water
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Mix onion soup mix, panko breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, egg, salt and pepper into ground beef
  2. Form into patties and set aside to rest
  3. Caramelize the onions in a pan with one tablespoon of butter and 1/3 cup water. Cook down until onions are translucent and the water is mostly gone
  4. Once lightly browned, add Triple Cream Sherry to the onion pan. Cook down for 1 to 2 minutes longer and remove from heat – then transfer to bowl
  5. Now it is time to make the patties! Using a spoon, put a small dent in the top so they don’t puff up too much while cooking. Add two tablespoons of butter to the pan and cook the patties for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until desired level of doneness
  6. Once the patties are done, place a slice or 2 of Swiss cheese on top of the patty with your desired amount of caramelized onion. Put on a brioche bun and serve
  7. Voila! You’re done, enjoy!
