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.
