- 4 tablespoons butter, divided
- 4 slices sourdough bread
- 4 slices Swiss cheese
- 1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup and relish; cover and refrigerate.

Season with salt and pepper; remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, saute onion in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Remove and keep warm.
