When you order a classic Patty Melt, you usually get a burger on rye bread smothered with onions and cheese. But what if you don't like Rye bread and what if you're not in the mood for all those onions? To me a Patty melt is simply a cheeseburger fried up like a grilled cheese sandwich. And so I bring you my very own classic Patty Melt....for those who like the simple things in life.
My Simple Patty Melt
In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, salt & pepper, and Worcestershire. Form into a patty. Fry the patty on both sides until done. Remove from skillet and wipe out skillet and return to burner.
Set you heat to medium and melt two tablespoons of butter. Butter one side of your bread and lay it buttered side down in the skillet or on a griddle. Next add your 2 slices of cheese, the hamburger patty, and the other two slices of cheese. Butter the side of the second slice of bread and lay it on top with the butter side facing up.
Grill the sandwich over medium heat until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Slice in half and serve immediately!
