Open-Face Veg Burgers with Sauteed Onions

I really had some hesitations about this recipe. I am not a huge veggie burger fan (I prefer a veggie dog). But, hey, I am willing to try new things. And you know what? I am so glad I tried this recipe! Wow! I think the combination of the ciabatta bread, the mayo-mustard combo, and the onions really made this recipe fabulous. I used Yves refrigerated veggie burgers, and just microwaved them until they were warm.  These are open-faced (no top bun), but you can eat them with the bun on as well (that bread is so good!). We will add these to our dinner line-up, that’s for sure. With these, I served some curly fries and some cole slaw.
