Kimberly Schlapman’s Grilled Turkey Burgers with Caramelized Onions

2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced
3 tbsp. maple syrup
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1½ lbs. (93% lean) ground turkey
1 large egg
2 tbsp. minced parsley
1 tbsp. whole-grain mustard
3 garlic cloves, minced
Olive oil
4 sesame seed buns, toasted
4 (1-oz.) slices American or Cheddar cheese

1. Cook onions, covered, in a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat 10 to 15 minutes. Uncover; cook 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden. Stir in syrup and red pepper. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
2. Preheat grill to 350° (medium) heat. Combine turkey, ½ tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. pepper and next 4 ingredients. Shape mixture evenly into 4 patties. Brush patties with olive oil; season as desired with salt and pepper. Grill patties on a lightly oiled rack over direct heat 10 to 12 minutes, turning burgers after 6 minutes. Serve on toasted buns with cheese and caramelized onions.
