Prep Time 35min

Classic patty melts are so simple to make and so yummy, you'll never have leftovers. Serve with chips or hand-cut fries, pickles and a cold root beer for a restaurant style meal at home.

What you'll need

  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 Tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 1/12 pounds ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt or 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 slices rye bread
  • 8 slices American or Swiss cheese
  • butter for spreading

Yields 4 sandwiches

How to make it

  1. Mix ground beef with salt and pepper and form into 4 patties slightly larger than the bread you will be using. Set aside.

  2. Cook onion in oil until well caramelized, about 10-15 minutes. Set aside.

  3. In a large frying pan, cook burgers until desired doneness is achieved - usually 6-8 minutes per side. Remove from pan.

  4. Stack patty melts together, bread, one slice of cheese, burger, another slice of cheese and 1/4 caramelized onions followed by another slice of bread.

  5. Butter both sides of each sandwich and cook in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until cheese is melted and sandwiches are golden brown.
