#48 :: Patty Melt

I was feeling like a down-home comfort food classic. We had a lot of extra hamburger meat and some crusty french bread, so I immediately thought Patty Melt. Jamie said "I've never had a Patty Melt". So of course I had to make him one. Who has never had a Patty Melt?????


  • 1 lb. ground hamburger
  • 4 slices of crusty french bread
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • Sliced cheese (we used Smoked Swiss for mine and Hot Pepper for Jamie's)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


Shape the hamburger meat into patties and season with salt & pepper. Cook them in a frying pan until done, then remove and set aside. In the same pan, add 2 Tbsp.butter to melt.

Dice the onion and saute it in the same pan the hamburgers were cooked in. Saute the onions until they are carmelized.

Melt the remaining 2 Tbsp. butter on the grill, assemble the sandwiches and grill them until golden brown on both sides. (Usually 10-12 minutes)

Makes 2 servings
