Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Burger patty
Salt, pepper, granulated garlic, to taste
Melted butter, as needed
2 pieces Italian bread
2 Tbs. mayonnaise with roasted garlic & mustard
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 slices Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sliced onions


Season one side of the burger with salt, pepper and garlic.

Place on grill or in broiler, seasoned side down.

Then season the other side.

Cook to desired doneness. (At our Applebee's, the minimum internal temperature of any burger

is 155 degrees.

While burger is cooking, melt butter in fry pan on medium heat or in electric skillet (set at 350 degrees).

Spread mayonnaise onto bread.

Drop bread, dry

side down, onto melted pools and swirl to coat (to avoid sticking/burning).

cover one slice of bread with two slices of Swiss cheese and the other with two slices of cheddar.

In a separate frying/saute pan, melt butter and saute sliced onions.

Season with salt, pepper and garlic while heating. Place cooked burger patty on top of one cheese-topped slice of bread and the sauteed

onions on the other.

Carefully close and cut sandwich.

Serve with your favorite summer side dish.

We serve ours in "classic" style with seasoned French fries and a pickle.
