MethodIn large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat; cook sliced onions, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
Patties: Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk egg with water; stir in minced garlic, chopped fresh parsley, Dijon mustard, salt, caraway seeds and pepper. Mix in veal. Shape into four 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties.
Place patties on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre reads 160°F (71°C), 12 to 14 minutes.
Spread mustard over 4 of the bread slices. Top with patties, cheese and fried onions; sandwich with remaining bread.
