Ingredients

How to make it

  • Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium heat.
  • Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally until caramelized, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove onions from pan and set aside.
  • Lay rye bread flat on waxed paper on a baking sheet.
  • Butter each slice of bread on the top side, dividing one tablespoon of the remaining butter among the 8 slices.
  • Use less butter if wanting to cut down on calories.
  • Flip them over and butter the other sides of the 8 slices, dividing the one tablespoon of butter among them.
  • Reheat the skillet that cooked the onions.
  • Toast bread on both sides in the skillet, until the bread is light gold, about 1 minute per side.
  • Set the bread aside.
  • Divide beef into 4 evenly sized pieces.
  • Shape each into a patty about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Season both sides of the patties with salt and pepper.
  • Cook the patties about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare .
  • Remove from skillet and assemble sandwiches.
  • Lay out 4 slices of the toasted bread.
  • Top each with 1/4 of the onion mixture, then a slice of cheese, a beef patty, and a second slice of cheese.
  • Top with the remaining 4 toast slices.
  • Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in pan.
  • Toast sandwiches on both sides, about 1 minute per side, until cheese is melted and toast is a golden color.
  • Serve immediately.

    I like to make these quite a bit. Looks like you make them the same as I usually do, but sometimes we mix it up with different cheeses and breads.
