This is a different twist on the regular Patty Melt that I just had to share. I haven't tried it yet, but I will soon! I am guessing in the prep time.

What a great new way to do burgers! The seasoning is right on, and I loved the parmesan in the meat. I sauteed the veggies together (saved me a step), and tossed in a couple of cloves of garlic, sliced paper thin as well. The only other sub was fresh mashed garlic for the garlic salt. We really enjoyed these, Michelle! Can't wait to make'em again! :)

These burgers were great! I loved the spices and the parmesan in the meat - they gave a nicer flavor and the burgers were very juicy. The toasted garlic buns was a nice touch too! I served mine without the onions (personal preference) and hubby's with and we both really enjoyed these!

Very good melts - the Parm in the meat really made it tender and yummy! Thanks Michelle. Because I've had WLS surgery I don't eat bread so omitting it is the only change I made. I will be trying this with ground turkey and ground chicken - it's a keeper!
