1 1/2 tsp of balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp dried thyme, divided

In a small bowl combine sliced onion, vinegar, mustard, and 1/4 teaspoon of the thyme. Set aside.

In a medium bowl mix ground beef with remaining 3/4 teaspoon thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Shape in four patties.

Place patties on grill. Grill covered approx 8 minutes. Turn and top with cheese, and grill 7 minutes more or until approx 160 degrees. Place rolls, cut side down, on grill to toast. Place burgers in rolls, top with onion mixture, and serve.
