• 1 pound ground beef
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 6 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 6 slices rye bread
  • 6 slices sharp Cheddar cheese
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Season ground beef with salt and pepper and divide into 3 equal-sized balls. Shape each ball as close as possible to the shape of the bread. Make an indentation in the center of each patty with your thumb.


  • Step 2

    Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook onion until soft and translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from the skillet and divide into 3 equal portions. Place beef patties into the same skillet and cook until desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, spread 1 teaspoons mayonnaise on one side of each slice of bread.

  • Step 4

    Place bread mayonnaise side-down in the skillet. Top with 1 slice of cheese, 1 beef patty, 1/3 of the onions, a second slice of cheese, and another slice of bread, mayonnaise side up. Cook bread until golden brown and cheese has started to melt, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip each sandwich over and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:

    Putting an indentation on the beef patties helps them from puffing up.
