  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • Drain and reserve excess butter to toast bread slices, refrigerate onions until cooled.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of reserved onion butter in the same skillet over medium.
  • Toast 2 slices of bread at a time until desired doneness; repeat with remaining ingredients and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, heat the tomato slices until a slight charring occurs, set aside.
  • Combine the sausage and caramelized onions together in a mixing bowl.
  • Divide the sausage mix into 4 equal parts and roll into individual ball-shapes.
  • Using the same skillet, smash the sausage into the skillet with a flat spatula until you have your desired thickness.
  • Cook over medium heat for 12-15 minutes or until the natural juices run clear.
  • Finish with the shredded cheese and let melt before removing from the skillet.
  • You can cook them all in the same skillet or two at a time.
