Panko Crusted Turkey Burgers w/Caramelized Onions

OK, so this recipe came about in an attempt to get my family to eat healthier.  Honestly, they won't even try it, but my friends and I LOVE this recipe!  I KNOW you will too...

1 Lb. Ground Turkey
1 Egg
3/4 cup Panko Bread Crumbs (plus more for coating)
2 Tbsp. Real Maple Syrup
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
Cheddar Cheese (shredded or sliced)
6 Whole Wheat Rolls

Combine all ingredients, (except cheese and rolls).  Roll into 6 even-sized balls.  Coat with additional Panko crumbs & flatten into patties.
(Refrigerate while making Caramelized Onions.)

To caramelize onions:
Slice 1 large onion into thin rings.  Saute in 2 Tbsp. butter until deep brown, stirring often to prevent burning.  Set aside.

Drizzle patties generously with olive oil and grill on medium heat until cooked through (burgers will be firm when you press on the center).  Top with cheddar cheese.

To serve: 
Lightly grill buns.  Spread maple butter (recipe below) generously over each bun (top & bottom). 
Place pattie on bun and top with caramelized onions. 

Maple Butter:
Combine 2 Tbsp. softened butter, 2 Tbsp. Real Maple Syrup and 1 Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper.   

Happy (Healthy!?!) Eating!
