There are a lot of burger recipes out there, we know. But we like to think that this is the burger that tops all burgers, thanks to oozy, melty Monterey Jack cheese and jammy balsamic onions. Oh, and we should mention that this patty comes with breaded zucchini on the side, so you can get your fix of crispy, crunchy finger foods and a dose of veg all in one.

1

Adjust rack to upper position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Mince or grate 1 clove garlic (use the other as you like). Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion. Cut zucchini into 3-inch-long pieces, then halve each piece lengthwise. Cut halves into thin wedges.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, 8-10 minutes. Stir in vinegar and 1 tsp sugar. Continue cooking until syrupy, 1-2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat. Remove from pan and set aside in another small bowl. Wash out pan.

While onion cooks, combine zucchini and ½ TBSP garlic mayo in a medium bowl until wedges are evenly coated. Add ¼ cup panko, oregano, and a large pinch of salt and pepper; toss so that crumbs stick to zucchini. (It’s okay if not all the breadcrumbs stick!) Spread on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake, tossing halfway through, until panko is golden brown, about 15 minutes.
