Place onion slices in shallow glass dish; pour vinegar mixture over onions. Cover; refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Wrap rye bread in a single thickness of heavy duty aluminum foil. Place on grill 4 inches from medium coals. Heat 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove onions from marinade; reserve marinade. Place hamburgers on grill 4 inches from medium coals. Cook 5 minutes on each side, or until done, brushing frequently with reserved marinade.

To serve, place 1 hamburger patty on slice of warm bread; top with onion slices, a second patty and second slice of bread.

Note: if you don’t care for veal you can substitute ground turkey or ground chicken.
