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.

Deluxe Teriyaki Burgers
For the burger patties:
1 pound ground beef, at least 15% fat
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 small yellow onion, minced
2 teaspoons ketchup
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Remaining ingredients:
4 hamburger buns or 8 Hawaiian rolls
1 pound bacon, cooked
8-10 lettuce leaves
1 large tomato, sliced
1 white or sweet onion, sliced
8-10 pineapple rings
1/2 cup store-bought teriyaki sauce
Preheat your gas or charcoal grill to high.

In a large bowl, combine all burger patty ingredients and mix gently with your hands to combine. Do not over mix or the meat will become mushy when cooked. Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions for meal-sized burgers or 8 portions for sliders, forming the patties loosely with your (clean) hands. Cook for 2 minutes and flip. Cook for two more minutes and reduce heat to medium (or move patties to a cooler spot on a charcoal grill). Grill 2-3 more minutes for medium-rare burgers, 3-4 minutes for medium and 5-7 for well-done.

The last minute of cooking the burger patties, put the bun tops and bottoms, split side down on the grill to toast them up for about a minute.

To assemble the burgers, spread some mayonnaise on the bottom of each bun and top with a burger patty. Drizzle teriyaki sauce over the burger patties. Add bacon, tomato, lettuce, onion and pineapple to each burger. Cover with the bun top and serve immediately.
