Veggie Patty Melts

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Asha1126

I am not a vegan, but I love the different variety of meatless soy burgers. This is a patty melt made with whatever flavor burger you want. Add mustard, ketchup, and a pickle for extra flavor.

This is an excellent recipe! It's 8 Weight Watchers Points Plus and delish!! I used Arnolds sandwich thins (seedless rye) and added a little Dijonase for more flavor. The onions cooked perfectly and it was a hit with my husband who loves patty melts. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
