1 lb ground beef (80/20)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp BBQ Rub- https://www.jbroscooking.com/post/bbq-sunrise-sandwich (BBQ Sunrise Sandwich)
1 Onion, thinly sliced
4 slices Swiss cheese
4 tbsp butter
4 slices rye bread
Shape the ground beef into burger patties. In this episode, the meat was formed in an oblong to be flatten evenly in the flat cooking top. This is to make the patty thinner
Grease the top with olive oil and cook the patties for about five minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper. Flavor it with the BBQ rub.
Add the onion on top of the patties. Wait for it to get caramelized before flipping the patty. Then, season again with salt and pepper
While still in the grill, layer it with Swiss cheese. Melt it just enough before taking the patty out of the heat.
Meanwhile, butter up the rye bread and toast it. Flip on both sides until it turns brown. Cooking should be around two to three minutes
Time to build the sandwich! You can double the layer of the patty or just go with one.
Serve while hot. Enjoy!
