1. For the Thousand Island: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined.
2. In a large sauté pan, add grapeseed oil over medium heat. Then add sliced onions and mushrooms and cook for 25-30 minutes until onions begin to caramelize on the bottom of the pan. Add balsamic vinegar to deglaze and cook about 10 more minutes, then season with salt and pepper to taste and finish by mixing in Dijon mustard. Remove from heat and set aside.
3. In a cast-iron pan, add oil and heat over medium. Add MorningStar Farms® Meat Lovers Vegan Burger patties and cook for 15 minutes until crispy; flip halfway.
4. Place a heaping spoonful of the onion and mushrooms on top of the burger patty, then lay a piece of Swiss cheese on top of the mixture. Allow cheese to melt.
5. While cheese is melting, drizzle bread with olive oil and brush with raw garlic clove, then toast.
6. To Serve: Generously spread Thousand Island Dressing on both slices of bread, then add MorningStar Farms® Meat Lovers Vegan Burger patty with melted cheese, mushrooms and onions, and the other slice of bread.
