    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the dressing

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Peel the onion; cut into 1/2-inch rounds, keeping the layers intact. Halve the buns. Halve the tomatoes. Peel 1 clove of garlic. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like; season with salt and pepper. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), vinegar, oregano, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

    Cook the patties & onion
    2 Cook the patties & onion

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and 4 onion rounds (you may have extra onion) in an even layer. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Flip (carefully, as the oil may splatter) and evenly top the patties with the grated cheese. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onion rounds are softened and the patties are cooked through** (the center will still be red or pink). Transfer to a work surface. Wipe out the pan. 

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F for Beyond Burger®.

    Toast the buns
