Ingredients

How to make it

  • In skillet over medium low heat add oil and sliced onion
  • Saute until caramelized, stirring occasionally (should take 20-25 minutes)
  • Remove from skillet and set aside
  • Salt and pepper both sides of burgers
  • In grill pan over medium high heat, add patties and cook until no longer pink. (About 3 minutes per side)
  • In the meantime, heat skillet over medium heat
  • Put cheese in bread and butter one side
  • Add to skillet and grill until golden brown
  • Flip and repeat.
  • Open sandwich and add patty, onions and this isn't classic but I love mine with mustard.
  • Slice in half and enjoy!!!

    I LOVE a good Ptty Melt...been eating them since our Walgreen's Grill in the late 1960's started serving them in Mankato Mn - fell in love with them - and lots of grilled onions, too!!! Great post, Wynne!!

    Yet an other deprived Canadian child never having a patty melt! I can't say that anymore though it was delicious! I used sour dough bread b/c that is what I had and lots of swiss cheese. A bit sloppy to eat b/c of that but it is divine. Sorry I am a bit tardy with posting this as I have had the pic hanging around in my camera for a while. Oh well better late than never! Posted in IMI

    i've made this 3 times already! (2 days in a row)!! anyway, i pretty much make as is, except i've found it easier to melt the cheese on top of the burger (like you're cooking a hamburger) and then when it's pretty much melted, i put the carmelized onions on top and then put it inside the bread after i've grilled both sides in a sep pan using butter (like the instructions say and like a g. c. sammy). usually my onions are done beforehand so i put them on top just to add a lil heat to them and then i'll put the cover on so everything melts... sooo yummy and tastey.. :) u have my 5! oh and p.s. i've had them using pumpernickel. going to try that instead!
