French Onion Melt Burger
We topped these Swiss-inspired burgers with brown mustard, caramelized onions seasoned with caraway seeds and Gruyére cheese.
Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 20 min
- 3/4 cup very thinly sliced sweet onion
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 teaspoon caraway seed (optional)
- 4 MorningStar Farms® Grillers Prime® Veggie Burgers
- 1 tablespoon brown mustard or Dijon mustard
- 2 ounces thinly sliced Gruyére cheese or Swiss cheese
- 2 ounces thinly sliced soy cheese
1. Cook onion in hot butter in nonstick frypan over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, for 14 to 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in caraway seed, if desired.
2. Meanwhile, place patties on baking sheet. Bake at 350ºF for 8 minutes. Turn patties. Bake 7 minutes more. Spread mustard on top of patties. Top with cheese. Bake for 1 to 2 minutes more or until cheese melts.
3. Spoon onions over top of patties.
ON THE GRILL:
<bullet>Use a food thermometer to be sure patties reach minimum internal temperature of 160° F.</bullet>
This recipe slowly sautés the onion to intensify the flavors of its natural sugars. Watch the onion carefully and stir frequently to avoid burning and off-flavors.
Recipe is vegan only if soy cheese and Morningstar Farms® Grillers® Vegan Veggie Burgers are used.

average US city ate one meal with veggie protein instead of meat, just once a week.
