Ingredients

How to make it

  • Divide beef into 4 equal parts. Shape into square patties slightly larger than the grilled cheese sandwiches that will serve as buns. (Use a slice of the Pepperidge Farm Very Thin bread as a template if you're uncomfortable eyeballing this.) Create an indentation in the centers of the patties—this will help maintain even thickness, as the center typically swells up when cooking.
  • Preheat a cast-iron skillet or heavy-bottom pan to medium-high. Meanwhile, in a nonstick skillet, prepare the Very Thin Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
  • Salt and pepper both sides of burger patties liberally. Throw those suckers in the cast-iron pan, cooking them in batches of two if your pan isn't big enough to hold them all at once. Cook about 3 minutes per side for medium. Remove patties from pan and let rest a couple minutes.
  • Sandwich patties between two grilled cheese sandwiches and top each with 1 medium-thick slice of ripe tomato.
  • Dont even think about Mayo on this..save the calories! Or go for it, add mayo, a dab of mustard and how about some bacon??

    I made this for my husband's football party and it was a hit with all my hubby's Packers buddies. I also added the bacon because I was told it wouldn't be a true "Fatty Melt" without it. 8-)
