Taste Of Barbecue From Inside

For the last 3 days I have had some ground beef sitting in my fridge waiting to be devoured.  Thank God for refrigeration!  Today I just had to use it since over the next couple of days (until Sunday) it will be busy ... not really time for eating at home and such.  My sister is getting married on Saturday and with all the prep necessary ahead of time we will just be hopping to get things ready.  Please pray for them! I was going to make this recipe last night but we went to a picnic instead so I HAD to make them tonight. Enjoy! They just mouth watering deliciousness.

adapted from:

5T butter, softened
1 T  olive oil
1 large onion, sliced thin
1 1/4 pounds ground beef
@1 T Worcestershire sauce
8 slices smoked cheddar cheese
8 slices bread

Saute onion in 1T butter and olive oil; just until softened slightly.  Remove to a bowl; save drippings in pan. Combine ground beef and Worcestershire sauce just until mixed - don't over mix.  Patty out meat into 1/3 pounders (5oz each). Fry in drippings from onions until thoroughly done; remove to plate.  Next butter one side of each slice of bread as if for grilled cheese.  Place buttered side down in pan.  Slice of cheese-burger-another slice of cheese. Lastly the last piece of bread. Grill as if a grilled cheese sandwich until cheese is melted and gooey.  Serve with your favorite sides - I did wavy potato chips.  Note: You could put onions in between burger and cheese.  I just served on the side since hubby is not a big onion fan and he could then add his own.
