A few weeks ago I made Patty Melt sandwiches...or burgers...whatever they would be called. Whatever you call them, they were really good!
Hamburger Meat, formed into oval shapes for hamburgers (shape depends on bread shape)
Salt, pepper, onion powder
Sliced Bread (I used the larger potato bread)
1 Large onion, cut into rings and then halved (so half circles)
1 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoons butter
In large skillet or on griddle, melt butter on medium high heat. Add oil and onions. Cook until onions are caramelized. Remove from heat. Fry hamburgers, seasoning with salt, pepper, and onion powder. Cook throughly. Now either clean off skillet or griddle, or use a different one. Melt butter on skillet or griddle on medium or medium-high heat. Place sliced bread down top with cooked hamburger, slice of cheese, and grilled onions. Place another slice of bread on top. When bottom of sandwich is browned, flip the burger to cook the other side. You will need to add more butter as you're grilling the burgers.
My family didn't want any mustard or mayo. Some recipes I saw called for a special sauce - like a mayo/ketchup mixture, but we didn't want it. Enjoy! Pin It Now!
