Another easy sandwich that my boys liked. They had trouble with onions, but I chopped them REALLY fine and I don't know that they knew they where there, did you guys, lol.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté onions until golden in 2 tablespoons butter until translucent and lightly golden.
  2. Remove from the pan.
  3. Form the meat patty so it will fit the bread.
  4. Grill to desired doneness.
  5. Butter bread on one side; put buttered side down on hot griddle, put 1 slice cheese followed by onions then cooked patty, followed by cheese.
  6. Butter one side of the other slice of bread and place on top buttered side out.
  7. Fry until bread is crisp but not burned (I have trouble with this part), turn over and do the same thing on the other side. Cheese should be well melted.
  8. Slice on the diagonal.

This was made for my dinner on 5/27/08, and as part of "A Taste of Yellow 2008 " and for "April Showers Bring May Flowers 2008 ".I've eaten several patty melts in my life, and this happens to be the best I've ever had.The only swiss cheese I had was block, so a little of that was shredded and used.Since my bread was shaped a little different than other rye breads, I did have a little trouble turning it over. But other than that, this will be made again. Thank you for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"

Great! BUT... I use ground turkey and add a little lipton onion soup mix to it and they are wonderful!
