Patty Melt Recipe

These classic patty melts are made with meaty burger patties topped with two kinds of cheese and onions, and pressed between thick slices of Texas toast. Simply delicious!


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • ½ cup butter divided
  • 1 extra-large sweet onions peeled and sliced into thin strips
  • 12 slices thick-cut sandwich bread Texas toast
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • Salt and pepper


Set a large sauté pan, or skillet over medium heat. Add 4 tablespoons of butter to the skillet. Once melted, stir in the onion slices. Sprinkle the onions generously with salt and pepper. Turn the heat down to medium-low and stir the onions. Continue to stir and sauté the onions for 15 to 20 minutes, until they are soft and caramelized on all sides. Then turn off the heat.

Meanwhile, set out a large mixing bowl. Place the ground beef in the mixing bowl and add 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, ½ teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and ½ teaspoon of cracked black pepper. Crumble the ground beef with your hands, mixing the seasonings throughout the meat. Then press the ground beef into the bottom of the bowl and use a butter knife to divide into six equal portions.
