Recipe developed by Matt Ewy, Metcalfe’s Dietetic Intern, UW-Hospital & Clinics Dietetic Internship Program
10 thin slices sweet onion
2 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
½ pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
4 slices rye bread
2 tablespoons Thousand Island dressing
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
2 slices American or Swiss cheese
In a large nonstick skillet, saute onion in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Remove and keep warm.
Shape beef into two oval patties; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In the same skillet, cook patties over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 and meat juices run clear; drain. Remove and keep warm.
Spread remaining butter over one side of each slice of bread. Place in skillet, buttered side down, and toast until lightly browned.
Combine salad dressing and horseradish. On two slices of toast, layer a slice of cheese, a beef patty, half of the onion and dressing mixture. Top with remaining toast. Yield: 2 servings.
