Patty Melt Recipe

  • Author: Bobby
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1lb ground beef
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup onion (sliced)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 slices rye bread
  • butter (for spreading)


  1. In a large skillet melt 4 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until lightly browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  2.  Form ground beef into 4 patties. Season on both sides with salt and pepper. Place into the skillet and cook hamburger patties over medium-high heat until the burgers are fully cooked (they have reached an internal temperature of 160 degrees).
  3.  Heat another skillet to medium heat. Butter one side of the bread. Put the buttered side down on the hot skillet. Place 1 slice of cheese followed by onions, then add the cooked patty and top with another slice of cheese. Butter another slice of bread and place on the top buttered side out.
  4. Fry until the bread is browned and crisp on the bottom and turn over and fry until the other side is browned and crisp. The cheese should be melted. Repeat until all of the patty melts are cooked.
