When I was a little girl, my father always ordered Patty Melts when we would go out. I didn't get the concept then. My taste needed to mature. Fortunately my kids are all over them. It's also a great way to get dinner out quickly. These are super easy to make and super fast. I personally love them on Rye bread but The Tortured Teenager cringes at the thought so she gets sourdough bread. I have tried to by lighter varieties of rye bread but still she is just not on board. Her loss.
I wont even bother to tell you how to BBQ or cook your burgers. Tonight I am pan frying.
At the same time I am making burgers, I cook up some onions in a TB of butter. Yes, Butter!
Butter two pieces rye bread
Grill open face with cheese on both pieces like grilled cheese. Some like to add the cheese to the burger but I prefer doing it on the bread.
Add grilled onions to one side
Add burger to the other piece of bread.
Serve with a deli pickle...it's a must!
Family Friendly Note For younger kids that do not like onions, you could leave them out! Have the kids help with assembling the patty melts. Enjoy!
