Balsamic Caramelized Onions
  • 3 large onions, cut in half and then sliced(any kind will do, but we usually use white or red)
  • 1/2cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2lbs ground turkey
  • 1/2cup finely chopped onion
  • 2tbs worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 1/2tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2tsp garlic, minced
  • 1tbs dried thyme
  • 8slices slices provolone cheese(cut to size with a cookie cutter)
  • balsamic caramelized onions
  • miniature burger buns
  • butter lettuce
To make the balsamic caramelized onions
  1. Put your sliced onions and vinegar in a large skillet with a tight fitting lid. If you don’t have one you can use a pot instead, but the process may take a bit longer. Cover and cook about 20 minutes.
  2. Take off the lid and continue to cook, stirring every few minutes, until there is no liquid left. Once this happens, the onions will start to caramelize. You’ll then add 1/3 cup of water, stirring again until there is no liquid left. Repeat this process until onions are fully cooked and caramelized. Set aside.
To make the burgers
  1. Mix together all ingredients, form into 12 burger patties. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Make sure it’s nice and hot before adding your burgers or they may stick. You can also cook these in a cast iron skillet. Either way, using medium-high heat, they should take about 7 minutes on each side. Flip only once to get the juiciest burgers and cook until the burgers reach 165 degrees or if you don’t have a thermometer, until they’re hot and no longer pink on the inside. Put a slice of provolone on each one and close the lid until melted (this will only take a minute or so).
  2. Now you build with your sliders with all the toppings you desire, and enjoy!
