I grew up eating this sandwich, yet I ALWAYS seem to forget about it! Then I remember and make it and think “why do I always forget about this??”  (Thank you to a friend for REMINDING me about it!!!)

It is great with soup. It is a great way to use up some leftover French Bread. You can use whatever bread your family would enjoy.

I can usually get 4 good size sandwiches out of this.

Patty Melts  

1 onion, sliced thinly
2 TB. butter
good dash of seasoning salt
1 lb. ground beef
salt & pepper (to taste)
1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
6 slices of provolone or Swiss cheese
8 slices of bread (French, Rye or Pumpernickel)
butter for spreading on bread

Melt the butter in a skillet, add the onions and seasoning salt. Cook till browned and caramelized (usually takes a good 20 minutes or so). Set aside.

Mix together the beef, salt & pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Mix till just combined and shape into 4 patties (aim for a shape that is similar to your bread, so this might be more ovalish then roundish).

Cook patties, both sides,  in a skillet (I spray well with cooking spray) till cooked through.

Butter all the slices of bread on one side.

Assembly:  (I do this right on the griddle, spray with cooking spray 1st).
1 slice of bread, butter side down
1 slice of cheese
1 cooked beef patty
some onions
1/2 slice of cheese
1 slice of bread, butter side up

Brown on each side. Serve. Enjoy!!!


About Bobbi

I am a wife to my wonderful husband. I am a mom to 5 wonderful/busy/crazy/noisey/happy snappy boys. My hobby is cooking and baking, I love to read recipes and organize the recipes I have. I enjoy making food for people and sharing recipes. My husband is not picky and will eat almost anything, my kids are not quite as easy, they can be picky eaters, which has lead me to try to make more “favorite family foods”. I am hoping that through this blog some of my friends and family, or anyone for that matter, will share their favorite recipes too!!! Feel free to email me at if you have any questions, suggestions or recipes you would like to share. I look forward to hearing from you! Bobbi
