Patty Melts

I love home made Patty Melts, you get to control exactly what's in it and make it how you like it! I actually haven't made Patty Melt's for awhile, I think of it as more of a fall or winter food, but saw a post about them on The Pioneer Woman that is crazy similar to how I make them!


  • approx 1lb of ground beef
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • cheese slices (I use mozzarella)
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  •  sliced bread (I use sourdough and bakery type white bread)

Step 1:

I start with slicing up the onion, adding them and some butter to a small sauce pan, cook them on low until caramelized.

Step 2:

Unlike making a burger with filler like bread crumbs and eggs, for patties I just use ground beef, salt and pepper and some Worcestershire sauce.  Mix then form into patties, I make them as thin as I can.

Step 3:
Fry up the patties until cooked through.

Step 4:

Make your sandwich by buttering the outside of your bread slice, put a piece of cheese, then a patty, then onions, another piece of cheese and another slice of bread buttered on the outside.

Step 5:
Fry until golden brown on both sides, don't flip too early on the first flip or the whole thing will fall a part, I won't tell you how I know that ;-)

Serve hot!

Family Thoughts

Everyone loves this, including the kiddos (I don't include the onion on theirs).  The norm is to use swiss cheese in a patty melt but we like the mozzarella better, same with liking sour dough and white bread over the rye.  Delish!!!!
