I got the idea for this burger from my friends over at BJ’s Cooking Club. We have had a membership at BJ’s Wholesale Club for years and years…it’s our favorite place to go when we’re entertaining a crowd, or let’s be serious…I have a family with 4 boys, pretty much everyday is a party!

Anyhow, BJ’s has an entire online Cooking Club (Cook Smart, Eat Fresh), which is fantastic because it provides exclusive online meal solutions and recipe ideas, plus if offers deals and tips that will help make the planning and cooking portion easy, so you have more time to focus on your friends and family…especially this season when we’re all surrounded by loved ones.

Here’s a sneak peek for you guys to check it out!

This is where my burger comes into play. While I was browsing through some of the recipes on the Cooking Club site I got an idea. That’s what is also so great about the site…it’s filled with new ideas, as well as tried and true recipes that can spark creativity from you!


I saw the classic recipe for Onion Dip, and thought about a new way to serve it! I just made a new little changes to the original recipe to make it a touch more interesting. And certainly you can use the new twist as a dip…totally YUM! BUT I decided to try it as a Burger Condiment…makes sense, right? I kept the fundamentals: The Hellmann’s Mayo, the Lipton Onion Soup Mix and sour cream and added in some buttery caramelized onions and a few dashes of Hot Sauce.

Adding in those caramelized onions takes this to the next level!

You can easily serve this up with a plate of chips and have a “wow” appetizer…

Or spread it all on a burger or sandwich..I’m telling you it’s a good idea!
