Turkey Burgers with Caramelized Onions

2 large sweet onions, cut into 1/8-inch slices
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1-1/4 pounds lean ground turkey
salt and pepper, to taste
6 hamburger buns, split
4 tablespoons butter
1-2 cloves garlic, minced

In a large nonstick skillet over low heat, cook onions in oil and butter for 1 hour or until tender, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with the sugar, salt and pepper; cook over medium-low heat for 45-60 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with thyme; keep warm. In a large bowl, combine the green onions, Worcestershire sauce and pepper sauce; crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties. Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill burgers, covered, over medium-hot heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear. Meanwhile, mix 4 tablespoons butter with garlic. Spread a thin layer over each bun. Toast under broiler. Serve turkey burgers on buns with caramelized onions.
