Step 3:

Divide onion, ham, cheese, and frisee between bread slices. Top each with another bread slice. Be sure to butter top slices.

THANK YOU for specifying cutting the sandwich diagonally! Seriously, it makes the sandwich so much better. I am not being facetious.

Sue says:
I agree. It gives you so much more surface area for the cheese to ooze out.
