    3KillerBs's Note:

    I used to work at Friendly's, a family restaurant chain where patty melts were a major feature of the menu. The ordinary patty melt is a grilled swiss on rye with a hamburger and some grilled onions inside. But its even better with bacon and mushrooms. My DH's absolute, favorite burger. The prep work takes a little time as you cook each element but if you have the bacon, onions, and mushroom ready ahead you can assemble the patty melts as fast as you can cook a hamburger. Good for race day, game day, or any time you've got a crowd of hearty eaters at your table.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the bacon strips in half. Fry to preferred doneness (I like mine moderately soft).
    2. 2
      Fry onions in a little butter over medium to medium-high heat until cooked and browned.
    3. 3
      Fry mushrooms in butter or bacon grease until nicely cooked and a little browned.
    4. 4
      Form ground sirloin into 6, slightly oval patties. Fry or grill to preferred doneness (I like medium-well).
    5. 5
      While patties are cooking, make 6 sandwiches of rye bread and cheese. Butter the outsides and cook like a normal grilled-cheese sandwich -- in restaurant-speak this is a "set-up".
    6. 6
      When set-ups are ready them pry them open and set them on the individual plates.
    7. 7
      Put cooked patties on one side of the set-up. Top with bacon strips, onions, and mushrooms.
    8. 8
      Close sandwiches, pin with frilly toothpicks, and cut in half.
    9. 9
      Offer mayonnaise and/or mustard (preferably brown or Dijon), at the table.
    10. 10
      I prefer to offer coleslaw (try Better Dressing for Coleslaw ), or a green salad but really crisp french fries and a pickle on the side are customary.

      My husband is in love with your recipe! I use rye bread and swiss with lots of onions and mushrooms. Lately he has been asking me to mix some A1 Steak Sauce in with the meat when I make the patty.
