Grilled turkey burgers with barbecued onions (Carol Mighton Haddix, Chicago Tribune)

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 Spanish onions, halved, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons prepared barbecue sauce
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey (not lean)
1/4 cup each: milk, chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon smoked Spanish paprika or regular paprika
1/4 teaspoon each: salt, freshly ground pepper
4 sesame seed buns

1. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over high heat. Add onions; stir-fry onions 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring often, until soft and starting to caramelize, about 15 minutes. Stir in barbecue sauce; cook 1 minute. Remove from heat. Cover; keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, prepare a grill or grill pan for medium-high heat. Lightly mix turkey, milk, parsley, paprika, salt and pepper in a large bowl; form into 4 patties. Grill until just cooked through, turning once, about 8 minutes. Place on bun bottoms; top each with onions and top buns.
