TECHNIQUE TO HIGHLIGHT
For melt-in-your-mouth richness, we're giving an onion special English treatment with our take on creamed onions. This traditional holiday side becomes the ideal luxe burger topping when cooked in the pan with aromatic sage, a bit of sugar and cream, which helps tenderize and caramelize the onion to perfection and gives them their hallmark creamy texture.

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Thinly slice the cheese. Pick the sage leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves. Halve the buns. In a bowl, combine the dijonnaise and honey (kneading the packet before opening).

Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped sage. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and sugar. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and the liquid has cooked off.
