1. Season the beef with salt and pepper. Divide meat into six 1/4"-thick patties that are slightly wider and longer than the bread.
2. Heat 2 tbsp. oil in a 12" cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and browned, about 12 minutes. Transfer the onions to a bowl; wipe out skillet. Working in 3 batches, heat 1 tbsp. oil in skillet over high heat. Add 2 burger patties; cook, flipping once, until well browned, about 4 minutes total. Transfer patties to a plate.
3. Top each of 6 bread slices with some of the onions, a cheese slice, and a burger patty. Top each burger with a cheese slice and a piece of bread. Using a table knife, spread butter over the top and bottom of each sandwich.
4. Heat a 12" nonstick skillet over medium heat. Working in 3 batches, cook sandwiches, flipping once, until golden brown and hot, about 6 minutes.

KalaborativeGreat recipe... I'd really like a sauce to go with this, though, any good ideas? :)3y ago
1horse4meWonderful sandwich! Quick and simple to make yet very tasty! I threw in some fresh chopped garlic with the onions during carmelization and turned out great!3y ago
bdunmanEasy to make, my family loved it!4y ago
Jengerhardt96Simple and delicious! I used grass-fed beef, Boars Head cheddar, yellow onion, and Onion/Dill/Rye loaf. Perfect! So decadent, 1/2 sandwich is plenty with fresh fruit or celery/carrot sticks.4y ago
sgrishkaGreat sandwich! We made no changes to the recipe but did use our own fresh ground sirloin, Vidalia onions, Tillamook cheddar and a homemade dark Russian rye. We also served thousand island dressing on the side. The patty melts were near perfect representations of comfort food—rich, juicy burger patties trapped between crisp, buttery, toasted bread, sweet caramelized onions and ooey-gooey, molten cheese. Mouth-watering, melt-in-your mouth delicious!5y ago
