Absolutely the best modified burgers! My mother invented these and people have asked for these burgers for years and years. There have been many imitators, but the original is Wonnie’s. You can adjust any of the ingredients to fit your taste. Remember that the onion mix should be one packet per every 2 pounds of ground beef. Serve with your best buns and toppings!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • ½ pound bulk pork sausage
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. 2 Mix the ground beef, pork sausage, Parmesan cheese, eggs, sweet onion, garlic, onion soup mix, Worcestershire sauce, kosher salt, and black pepper together in a bowl until evenly incorporated. Shape into 10 patties.
  3. 3 Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked through and no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  1. I cut down onion soup by 1/2 to cut the salt; way too much sodium. They were ok as I have made similar.
  2. These were fabulous! I made exactly as the recipe instructs and was very impressed. I will definitely make these again.
  3. Love this recipe! I didn't add the chopped onion though as according to my son they are worse than chicken pox and his texture detection is too well developed to think o can get away with it.
  4. Really liked it, were juicy and flavourful. Did not put the real onion in, just the onion soup mix. I also used a couple of hot Italian sausages instead of plain pork - added some heat and flavour. Finally, I left the patties in the refrigerator for an hour or so to set before cooking. - Read more ...
  5. Delicious and moist burger!! I had some spaghetti squash so I added about a cup to the mix. Will definitely make these again!
  6. These were good moist juicy burgers but just very oniony. So you need to like onions if you want to try this burger. I scaled this down to use 1 lb of 80/20 ground beef and left out the pork sausage. I made a copycat recipe of the onion soup mix using a recipe from - Read more ...
  7. i used a little less pork sausage more like 1/4 pound and i reduced the onion soup mix by half since the two reviews said it was too much. these were alright i might make them again but i wouldnt add the sausage ( its just weird in there in my opinion)
  8. I completely agree with the first review left by "QueenPin" - thanks for the helpful hints! VERY flavorful with the modifications. I grilled a bunch of them and froze them to bring to work for lunch & dinner meals. Just throw in a few romaine lettuce leaves or a burger bun, and voila! Instant, FABULOUS - Read more ...
  9. These were OK, but I think personally for us they were wayyyy too "oniony" with both a large onion and a package of onion soup. Flavorwise, they have potential, but I would not make these again without making some adjustments like: 1 - grating a half onion and pressing out the liquid instead of using - Read more ...
