    Ilysse's Note:

    Another open faced sandwich. The idea for this came from Bangers and Mash, one of DH favorite meals. Its too hot to make it durring the summer tho, so I thought this would cure the craving, at least until autumn. I got 6 melts out of this but felt that I stretched the sausage meat too far so I am suggesting that this makes 4. If your bread is small or if you need to stretch it, you can get 6 out of these. I used Jimmy Dean sausage, the kind you get in the tubular shaped package near the breakfast meats since I was shopping on a budget, but use whatever type you like best. I made these with Dijon mustard but we also thought Colmans mustard would be a nice touch. Use your favorite or whatever you have on hand. I served these with fries.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Peel and slice onion into thin rounds (or half rounds)and cook in olive oil over medium heat, stirring frequently, until they are very soft.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, form sausage meat into 4 thin patties. Try to form them so that they are slightly bigger than the bread slices since they will shrink when you cook them.
    3. 3
      When the onions are soft add the brown sugar and the vinegar. Stir and cook until the onions are browned.
    4. 4
      Fry sausage patties in a pan (use a little extra oil if your pan isn't non-stick) for about 3 to 5 minutes per side until cooked through or to your desired doneness (we like them very brown).
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, spread dijon mustard on each slice of bread in desired amounts.
    6. 6
      Top each slice of bread with a cooked sausage patty, then the onions, then the cheese.
    7. 7
      Place under the broiler (set to low so it won't cook too fast or burn) until cheese is melted and bubbling.

      Wonderful! The sweet onions with the slightly spicy sausage made for a great combination. I made a couple of adjustments to suit us-- we don't care for rye bread, so I used whole wheat; and I didn't have any swiss on hand, so I used provolone. Very good, and very easy- I'll be making these again! :)
