Recipe Ingredients for Burgers with Caramelized Onions

3 tablespoons bulgur
1/4 cup (boiling) water, plus
2 tablespoons water, divided
2 teaspoons (extra-virgin) olive oil
2 cups sliced onions
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar (87546)
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided

1 tablespoon tomato paste (11887)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Recipe Directions for Burgers with Caramelized Onions

  1. Combine bulgur and 1/4 cup boiling water in a small bowl; let stand until most of the water is absorbed, 20 to 30 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions and sugar; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very tender and golden, about 15 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons water, vinegar and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Keep warm over very low heat, stirring occasionally.

  3. Preheat the grill or broiler to high. Combine the bulgur, beef, tomato paste, parsley, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in a medium bowl; knead thoroughly to combine. Shape into two 3/4-inch-thick patties. Grill or broil on a lightly oiled rack until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Place the patties on

  4. Serve on whole wheat buns, top with the caramelized onions and garnish with lettuce.

  5. Tip: Transfer to remaining tomato paste to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months. Add to soups, chilis and sauces; stir into rice with oregano and cilantro to serve alongside Mexican dishes.
