I've never heard of "burping" the oil filter but it does make sense and I don't doubt it would work.
The other thing that maight prevent this would be to prefill the new filter with oil before installing it. Keep the catch can underneath it while you thread it on for any that might spill out. I've been doing it like this and have not had the oil light problem.
I ususally just try to crank the engine a bunch of times without letting it fire up (short cranks, and if it fires, I kill it)
Never had a problem so far. A little throttle blip may be needed to bring up the oil pressure once you finally start the engine.
