1 (16 oz.)

Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Pork Sausage Roll

1 pound

Lean ground beef (90/10 or 95/5)

2 large

Yellow onions, peeled, cut in half, then sliced thin

12 tablespoons


16 slices

Bread (sourdough or marble rye)

8 thick slices

Cheddar cheese

8 thick slices

Swiss cheese

1 cup

Thousand Island Dressing


  1. Heat 4 tablespoons of butter over low-medium heat in a skillet, until melted. Add onions and stir occasionally. Continue to cook until onions are caramelized, about 30 minutes.

  2. While onions cook, in a medium bowl, add ground beef and sausage roll. Mix until evenly combined, but do not overmix. No additional seasoning is needed.

  3. Divide meat into 8 equal parts (an easy tip is to use a cupcake scoop or ice cream scoop). Form each into a thin patty, slightly larger than the size of your bread slices.

  4. Heat a second skillet over medium heat, and once hot, add the first 4 patties. Cook approximately 4-5 minutes, then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. Meat should have a cooked temperature (internal) of 165 ˚F . When patties are cooked, remove from skillet and keep warm. Cook the remaining 4 patties in the same manner.

  5. Wipe out the pan, then add 4 tablespoons of butter and melt over medium heat.

  6. While butter is melting, build sandwiches on a cutting board in the following order:

    • Bottom slice of bread
    • 1 tablespoon dressing
    • 2 slices of Cheddar
    • Pork/beef patty
    • Caramelized onions
    • 2 slices Swiss cheese
    • More dressing, if desired
    • Top slice of bread
    • Spread remaining butter on top of bread

  7. Carefully transfer sandwiches to skillet with melted butter. Cover, and cook on medium-low, about 4-5 minutes, or until bottom bread is golden brown. Carefully flip over, and finish cooking, 1-2 minutes, until top is equally golden.

  8. Remove from skillet, cut in half on a diagonal, and serve hot. Add toothpick, if necessary, to hold sandwich together.
