Chopped Cheese Sandwich

These sandwiches originated in New York City and are traditionally made on a flat top grill; however, most people do not have those so I created a cast iron skillet version.



Step: 1

Combine mustard, ketchup, and cherry peppers in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth and set aside.

Step: 2

Melt butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until onions are soft and are starting to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step: 3

Form beef into two patties and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add hamburger patties and cook 5 minutes or until a crust forms on the bottom. Flip patties over and cook 3 minutes.

Step: 4

Using a wide spatula, break patties up into large pieces. Sprinkle sauteed onion in between the spaces of the hamburger pieces. Layer cheese over the beef, and cook 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Step: 5

Spread reserved mustard sauce on the bottom bun of each hoagie roll. Divide meat mixture between the two sandwiches. Top each with shredded lettuce and sliced tomato.
