Lordy, it must be thirty years since I had a cheese and raw onion 
(untoasted) sandwich.  I ate them off and on for a couple of years after 
reading about them as a 19th Century firefighter's food.  They were pretty 
good with a cold beer.  I was working nights and they made a great, fast 
lunch (which is why the firefighter's presumably liked them).

Sharp cheddar and a thin sliced sweet onion on a sandwich toasted in the 
cast iron sounds fine.  I'll make some later this week.
