For the Redeye Bourbon Onions-
-3 tbsp butter
-1 large onion (about 3 cups), halved and thinly sliced
-salt & freshly ground pepper
-1/4 cup bourbon
-1/2 cup strong black coffee
-2 tsp low-sulfur molasses
-1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
-2 tsp Dijon mustard
-1 tbsp cider vinegar, or more to taste
For the Burgers-
-1 lb ground turkey
-1/4 lb bacon, finely chopped
-1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
-1/4 tsp nutmeg
-1/2 tsp ground coriander
-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
-1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
-1 tsp kosher salt
-4 slices Cheddar cheese
-4 buns, toasted
-spinach or romaine leaves
1. To make the onions, melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add onions and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are browned and caramelized. Pour in bourbon and increase heat to medium-high. Cook until bourbon is nearly evaporated. Add coffee, molasses, Worcestershire, mustard, and vinegar, stirring to combine. Boil until liquid is nearly evaporated and onions are well coated. Add salt, pepper, and vinegar to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
2. Combine all burger ingredients in a medium bowl. Gently mix until fully blended. Divide evenly into four patties.
3. Grill over medium-high heat 4 minutes per side. Top with Cheddar and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until cheese is melted.
4. Top burgers with onions and lettuce/spinach. Serve immediately.
