• 1 stick butter

• 1 whole large onion, halved and sliced

• 1 ½ lbs ground beef

• Salt and pepper to taste

• 5 dashes Worcestershire sauce

• 8 slices Swiss cheese

• 8 slices Texas toast

DIRECTIONS: In a medium skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat. Throw in the sliced onions and cook slowly for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden brown and soft. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, salt and pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Form into 4 patties.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a separate skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties on both sides until totally done in the middle. Assemble patty melts this way: Slice of bread, slice of cheese, hamburger patty, ¼ of the cooked onions, another slice of cheese and another slice of bread. On a clean griddle or in a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter and grill the sandwiches over medium heat until golden brown.

Remove the sandwiches and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet. Turn the sandwiches to the skillet, flipping them to the other side. Cook until golden brown and crisp, and until cheese is melted.
