Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"This is not your everyday burger, and it is not for the tofu health nuts! This is more of a game-day man type burger! These are also good with a few strips of bacon added to them!"

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Divide the beef in half, and form each half into a patty. Grill the beef patties for 8 to 10 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.
  3. While the burgers are grilling, melt 1/4 cup of butter in a large skillet. Lay out 4 slices of bread, and top each slice with 2 slices of American cheese. Top each sandwich with a slice of bread to make 4 cheese sandwiches. Pan-fry the sandwiches in the butter until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Set the sandwiches aside.
  4. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet, and cook the sliced onions until browned, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes.
  5. To assemble, top each grilled burger with half the onions, and place each between 2 grilled cheese sandwiches.

I have never tasted anything more American in my life.

Great idea, but I used sliced sourdough one with provolone and the other with swiss, then topped the burger with a slice of american and a few strips of bacon or pancetta. I also seasoned the bu...
