First off, I've been making them for years. Don't add the minced onion, just mix,2T. mayo is all you need,if you can find Pepperidge farm dinner rolls(12 mini rolls to a pkg) this recipe will fill three of these. Just slice the whole bunch in 1/2, keeping them intact, spread, wrap in foil, and heat. These are just like White Castle and are suppose to be VERY oniony, so if you don't like onions, pick another recipe.

I couldn't get over the taste of the onion in this, it was too much. I think it would be great with less onions in it and more cheese, but this was still way too strong.

Made a double recipe (wanted to have some for that evening and some for future use). Did cut down the mayo to 4T. After browning and adding the mayo/cheese, I spread the mixture out on cookie sheets covered with parchment paper to eliminate sticking and press mixture to a thin layer,scored in 2" squares (to resemble White Castle burgers),cover tightly with foil and put them in the freezer to set(the scoring helps them break apart when frozen). Once frozen,broke squares apart and placed on Peppridge Farm Slider Rolls (I found them at Publix). Placed pickles on burgers and covered pans tightly with foil. With the 2" squares, I had 36 burgers. I wrap any unbaked burgers individually in foil,put in a freezer bag and pop them in the freezer. When ready to use only 1 or 2, I take the burgers out of foil and wrap them in a paper towel and pop them in the microwave for about 20-25 seconds on high.

I listened to reviews and left our dried onions-mistake. I did put mix in food processor after browning to make it softer consistency. Didnt bake, just froze then reheated in microwave. YUM!

To reduce onion taste, use the package of onion dip (without adding the add'l minced onion). Fantastic! Taste just like the famous sliders sold at a fast food chain!

This was really bad. Too salty and with a weird, almost sour flavor from the soup mix. I followed the recipe exactly and didn't make any changes, so I guess that's just the way it's supposed to be. We didn't like it at all. I was disappointed because it sounded like it would be good. Maybe the idea would work with sauteed onions instead of the soup and dehydrated kind. The artifical flavor is just too overpowering for me as the recipe is written.

My family loved this meal. The leftovers even became breakfast for my son. However, it called for too much mayonaise. I will certainly make this again. ***Update*** There is always quite a bit of burnt goodness on the bottom of the pan after browning the ground beef. So I add about a tablespoon of worstechire sauce to the pan after removing the ground beef to deglaze the pan. I then mix in the sauce with the ground beef.

I goofed and added the onion soup mix after browning the hamburger so I thought that was why mine were so oniony but after reading other reviews, I think I will reduce soup mix to half and try again ( following directions ;)
