These Classic Patty Melt Sandwiches are so simple, mouthwatering, and extremely easy to make. It is probably one of my favorites just because I absolutely love the combination of beef patty, cheese, and caramelized onions.
I mean, who would not love this?! It is a sandwich of my foodie dreams.

My family went bananas over it. You see, my husband and I didn’t grow up eating it like many of our American friends.
It was a completely new experience when I first made it compared to some of you eating it in your school cafeteria or diners.

However, I can say that I am so glad that I was the one who introduced this American Classic Sammie to my family. Indeed! It is a must-have at least once a month.

What is Patty Melt?

As I said, patty melt is a sandwich consisting of a hamburger patty with melted cheese and topped with caramelized onions between two slices of griddled bread, traditionally rye or marbled rye. However, sourdough or Texas toast usually is substituted in some regions, including the southern U.S.A.

Well, It is unclear when the patty melt was precisely invented. There are records that it was served as early as the 1940s. The patty melt is a variant of the traditional American cheeseburger, but instead of using it in a bun, it was served on the toasted bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds Laura’s Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 tsp Table salt
  • 1 tsp Ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4-1 stick of butter, unsalted, divided
  • 10 oz Yellow onion, sliced
  • 6-8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 8 slices of Bread; we used Texas toast

Instructions

  1. To Laura’s Lean Ground Beef, add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, olive oil, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well until all ingredients are combined then divide the meat approximately into 4
    equal portions (about 6 ounces each). Form each portion loosely into the thick burger to fit your bread slices, then make a deep depression in the center with your thumb.
  2. Place on the platter, cover, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, turn the stove to medium and heat your skillet, griddle, or a frying pan then add unsalted butter.
  4. When the butter is melted, add the onion, toss to coat in the
    butter. Toss every 2 to 3 minutes until the onions are soft and golden brown. About 12 to 15 minutes. Set aside!
  5. You can grill burgers or use a skillet/griddle. Since it is a grilling season, I thought of making my burger on the grill.
  6. For the grill: Grill the burgers until golden brown about 4 minutes on one side, flip, and grill 4 minutes for medium-rare. Please make your burger doneness your preferences.
  7. If you are cooking on the sauté pan, skillet, or griddle: Heat the oil in the skillet or griddle over high heat until the oil begins to shimmer; Turn down the heat t medium, then cook burgers for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. When done set aside.
  8. Spread a thin layer of butter on each slice of bread.
  9. Place a slice or two of cheese, a tablespoon of caramelized onions, a burger, a bit more of carnalized onions and top it off with the cheese. Place another slice of bread on top.
  10. Heat your skillet or a griddle, then toast the sandwich on both
    sides for a few minutes until golden brown and crisp, and the cheese is melted. Slice in half and serve right away.
