Diner Patti Melt

This is a diner staple.  I have always found it best at 3 AM coming out of the bar.  Or at 11 AM when you skipped breakfast and don’t have any sales calls scheduled for the afternoon.  Either way it’s delicious.  I have updated it with an adobo mayo and sourdough.  I hope you like it.
2 6-oz beef patties
1 yellow onion, peeled
4 Swiss cheese slices
4 slices sourdough bread
1 tablespoon adobo sauce
4 oz mayo
