The best part of Making your own Patty Melts is picking out your cheese and toppings and the bread of your choice, what could be better? This recipe will impress your family. Enjoy Good Food
What you Need:
1-1/2 pounds of ground chuck
1 large Vidalia or your choice of onion, halved and sliced
1 tablespoon of canola or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter, plus additional softened butter for the bread slices
4 Slices of Swiss cheese, or your favorite sliced cheese
8 slices of your favorite bread
Special Sauce, optional recipe
Garlic salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
How to Make it:
Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Shape the meat into Eight oval shaped patties, place on the pan and freeze for 15 minutes.
Next heat the oil and butter in a cast iron skillet. Add the onion and cook over medium high, stirring regularly, for about 5 minutes or until softened. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, stirring regularly, until caramelized, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the onion; set aside.
Sprinkle the meat patties with the garlic salt and pepper. Place into the same skillet, seasoning side down, and turn the heat back up to medium high. Cook until the patties are well browned on the underside, and cooked through. Flip, scatter onions on top and place a slice of cheese on top of the onions. Cover with a lid and move off of the heat source to let the cheese melt a little.
Generously butter one side of all of the bread slices. Place, butter side down into a fresh large non-stick skillet and place a slice of cheese on top of each slice of bread. Cook the bread until well browned on the underside. Top each bread slice with 2 of the meat patties and add some of the special sauce, if using. Top with a slice of buttered bread, butter side out, and carefully turn over to brown the other side, gently pressing down. Cook until well browned, Serve immediately.
