  3. Increase heat to medium-high and add ½ tbsp of butter to a skillet. When melted, make bread-sized thin square patties and cook all the way through, flipping about 3-5 minutes in. Add ½ tbsp of butter when flipping.
  4. To assemble sandwich, place bread down with a piece of cheese on top. Add sautéed onions, one patty then top with another slice of cheese. Add one more patty and another slice of cheese. Place the final slice of bread on top to complete the sandwich!
  5. Melt ½ tbsp of butter in skillet and place complete sandwich on top. Cook on medium-low until crispy brown. Add ½ tbsp of butter to the skillet when flipping it. Cook until cheese is melted and sandwich is browned on both sides.
  6. Take off, let cool for 2 minutes and Bon Appetite! Add arugula or a condiment (such as BBQ or spicy mustard) after cooking if preferred.
