making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

California Chicken Burgers
For the burger patties:
1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon sweet or smoked paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 slices jack cheese

Remaining ingredients:
4 brioche burger buns, split and toasted
4 strips bacon, cooked
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 ripe tomato, sliced
Large handful of leafy greens
Mayonnaise or sandwich spread
Make the burger patties: Combine chicken, garlic, onion and spices in a large bowl. Mix gently with your (clean) hands, being careful not to overwork the mixture. Form mixture into 4 patties of even size.

Heat oil in a large skillet to medium. Add burger patties and cook for 10 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking. Place a slice of cheese on top of each patty, cover and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove patties from heat and let rest for 5 minutes before assembling the burgers.

To assemble, Spread some mayonnaise on the bottom of each of the four buns. Place a patty on top of each and add bacon, avocado, tomato slices and some greens. Serve immediately.
