Sauté onion slices in a pan until translucent. Set aside. Heat a large nonstick griddle over moderate heat. Butter the cut sides of the hamburger buns and toast them on the griddle until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Season the patties with salt and pepper. Brush the griddle with the olive oil, add the patties, and cook over high heat for 2 minutes. Flip the patties and cook for 2 minutes longer, then top each one with a slice of cheddar cheese. Cook until the cheese is melted. Stack 2 burgers on each bun. Top with the lettuce, tomato, and sautéed onion. Spread the top halves of the buns with mayo, close the burgers and serve.
