  • About This Recipe

    “Really good with fries and slaw.ETA:I really like the finished sandwich fried like a grilled cheese.When I make them that way I toast my rye on the bagel setting, assembling the sandwich “toasted side in”.I also add Thousand Island Dressing on top of the onions.Then butter the bread and fry “like a grilled cheese sandwich”.Nirvana!”

  • “I loved the addition of the herbs.Very creative!”

  • “These are delicious, Di! I hadn’t had a patty melt in years! I was out of hamburger buns and did a recipe search and decided to make these. A very nice change from plain old burgers…we really enjoyed these! Thanks!”

  • “I may have been the only person in North America who had never had a Patty Melt.That has been corrected and this recipe will be a regular here!DH’s comment was “This is my kind of meal”
    I made it pretty much as directed but didn’t have swiss cheese so I used a mixture of provolone and cheddar.I also had to add a touch more pepper but other than that the flavours were spot on.Thanks for sharing this simple, tasty and definitely man pleasing recipe!”

  • “This was a very good recipe. I used just regular toasted white bread and it was still delicious. I also added some bacon to it. Thanks for the recipe!!”

  • “This is a great recipe…I made this for my family last night and they all raved about it…will make often…”

  • “This is a fantastic recipe!What a great meat mixture… full of flavor!Thank You!”

  • “I’ve been craving a good Patty Melt since our local diner burned down. These did the trick beautifully. Great recipe…will certainly be making them again!”

  • “Wonderful sandwich, I substituted provolone cheese for the swiss only because it was what I had on hand. Delicious!”

  • “The burgers were great. I substituted about 2/3 cup of dried bread crumbs, since I had to save my 4 slices of bread to put the burgers on! Loved the herbs, a nice change.”
