Ultimate Patty Melts - Rachael Ray

READY IN: 30mins




  • Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat with about 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Add the onion to the pan and cook until tender, 4-5 minutes.
  • Remove to a large mixing bowl and wipe the pan clean.
  • When the onions have cooled slightly, place the pan back over medium-high heat with about 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • To the mixing bowl with the onions, add the sirloin, Worcestershire, some salt and pepper and mix thoroughly to combine.
  • Divide the meat into 4 portions and shape into 4 thin burgers.
  • Add the patties to the hot pan and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.
  • While the burgers are cooking, butter up one side of each slice of bread then flip them over and spread mustard on each.
  • When the burgers have finished cooking, make stacks by laying down the slices of white bread, butter side-down, and top them with a slice of cheese, a patty, another slice of cheese, 2 slices of bacon and tomato and another slice of bread (butter side-up).
  • Wipe out the pan that the burgers were cooked in and return it over medium heat.
  • Add the stacks to the pan and cook until the bread is toasted golden brown and the cheese has melted, 2-3 minutes per side.
