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.

Cherry and Brie Burgers with Rosemary and Grilled Onion
Ingredients
1 cup finely chopped yellow or sweet onion for the patties
1 yellow or sweet onion cut into 1/3" slices for topping
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/3 cup mayonnaise
Zest of 1/2 lemon
2 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves, divided
3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
1 cup dried tart cherries
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound lean ground beef or bison (90 percent lean)
4 ounces brie cheese, thinly sliced to fit burgers
4 sesame hamburger buns, split
8 lettuce leaves
Directions
Cook chopped onion in 1 tbsp. oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until deep golden, stirring often, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in garlic, scrape into a large bowl, and let cool. Brush sliced onion with remaining 1 tbsp. oil and set aside.

In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon zest, 1/2 tsp. rosemary, and 1/4 tsp. pepper; chill.

Heat grill to medium (350° to 450°). Whirl cherries in a food processor until they're finely ground and form a ball. Add them to chopped onion with remaining 2 tsp. rosemary and 1/2 tsp. pepper, the salt, and bulgur; blend well with your fingers. Add ground meat and mix gently but thoroughly. Shape into 4 patties, 1/2 in. thick.

Grill onion slices, turning occasionally, until well browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Grill burgers, turning once with a wide spatula, until they no longer stick to grate and grill marks appear, 10 to 12 minutes total; about 2 minutes before burgers are done, top them with brie and grill the buns.

Spread buns with mayonnaise; add lettuce, burgers, and onions.
