Roast Beef Grilled Cheese

Look at that gooey cheese, caramelized onions, and wonderful deli-sliced roast beef on grill sourdough bread.
Is your mouth watering yet?
If not, it should be.
It smells so good.
Really good.
My mouth is watering again while I'm typing this.
These dandy sandwiches were last night's dinner at our house.
I kept trying to come up with a side dish, and never got around to it. Turns out we didn't need anything else.
One filled me up, and one and half filled up the hubs! I couldn't believe he was full.
It is a super easy and satisfying sandwich to make. It is a little pricey, as the cost of roast beef and cheese is going up everyday it seems. But treat yourself. You'll be glad you did!

Roast Beef Grilled Cheese

This made me 6 sandwiches, so cut back or add as needed :)

1 onion, sliced into rings
1 tbsp butter
1 lb. deli-sliced roast beef
12 slices sourdough bread
1/2 cup butter
36 slices of cheese (yes, 6 slices per sandwich) I used 1/2 pepper jack, 1/2 colby

In a large skillet, add the tablespoon of butter and the onion slices.
Cook over medium heat until the onions start to turn clear and caramelize.
Add slices of the roast beef to the other side of the skillet in a stack of 4 or 5 slices each.
I was able to add 2 stacks of roast beef to the skillet with the onions.
Reduce heat to low, and let onions stay warm, and heat the beef, flipping over after a minutes to brown both sides.
Heat another skillet or griddle for heating the sandwiches.
Generously apply butter to one side of each slice of the bread.
Place the bread, butter side down into the heated skillet or griddle.
Add 3 slices of cheese to the slice, then some of the onions, then a stack of the roast beef.
Top with 3 more slices of cheese, and another slice of bread, butter side up.
Heat thoroughly so grill marks appear on the bread, and it becomes toasted.
Flip after it has toasted to your desired taste.
Let the other side cook as well.
Repeat for each sandwich.
Place a finished sandwich on a foil lined baking sheet in the oven at 200° to keep warm until serving.
