"We love these messy sandwiches. I like to make the caramelized onions ahead of time and then these go together quickly. These make great sandwiches for Super Bowl Sunday. From Bon Appetit. No weight was given for the sausages, so I'm just guessing at that. :)"

Step by Step Method
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar, sugar and caraway seeds.
Reduce heat to medium-low and saute until onions are deep brown and very tender, about 20 minutes longer.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be prepared 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature. Rewarm over low heat before using.)
Brush 11x7-inch metal baking pan with oil. Place sausages in pan.
Broil until sausages are brown and crisp, about 6 minutes per side.
Transfer sausages to work surface and cut lengthwise in half.
Arrange 3 sausage halves on each of 2 bread slices.
Spread 2 teaspoons mustard over sausages on each.
Top sausages with caramelized onions, dividing equally.
Top with Gruyere or Emmental cheese slices, dividing equally. Cover with remaining 2 bread slices. Spread half of butter over upper bread slices.
Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.
Carefully invert sandwiches, buttered side down, into skillet.
Cover and cook until bottoms are brown, about 5 minutes.
Spread remaining butter over upper bread slices.
Turn sandwiches, cover and cook until bottoms are brown, about 4 minutes longer.
