Open-Face Cheeseburger Sub

[Photograph: Suzanne Lehrer]

This recipe is a tribute the most popular food item in my whole (one-street) New Hampshire college town: the C & A's cheeseburger sub. An open-face version is a little more, shall we say, elegant, as it can be eaten with a knife and fork. Serve with a toppings bar alongside with all of your favorite: pickles, mustard, ketchup, jalapenos.

Caramelized onions are mixed into the meat for extra sweetness and depth of flavor. Sharper cheese works best here to contrast the meat.
