1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 large (2 cups) onions, coarsely chopped
8 slices rye bread
8 ounces thinly sliced deli smoked turkey


Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add onions. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 6-8 minutes or until onions are softened and beginning to brown.

Assemble sandwiches by spreading 1 side of each bread slice with remaining butter. Layer 4 slices bread, buttered-side down, with 1 slice cheese, 1/4 turkey, 1/4 onion and 1 slice cheese. Top with remaining slices of bread, buttered-side up.

Place sandwiches in same skillet. Cook over medium heat, turning once, 4-6 minutes or until both sides are golden brown.
