    For the Caramelized Onions: Place butter and onions in a sauté pan and cook over medium heat. Season liberally with salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are browned and caramelized. If the bottom of the pan starts to stick before the onions are completely cooked through, add 1 tablespoon of water, scrape up the browned bits with a wooden spoon and continue to cook. When completely softened and caramelized, remove from the heat and set aside until ready to build the sandwiches.
