A patty melt is a hamburger patty with onions and cheese on toasted bread. My husband loves them. You can make one in just a few simple steps.1. Cook a hamburger patty.
2. Saute some onion slices until they are nice and brown.
3. Assemble the sandwich: bread, hamburger, slice of cheese, onions, bread.
4. Butter the bread and cook in frying pan until golden and cheese is melted.
If you want a sauce on the sandwich some options are: thousand island dressing, a mayo and ketchup mixture, or BBQ sauce (my husband's item of choice).
