Patty Melt (Out of this World)

Knowing that all I had in the freezer was ground beef, I was looking for a recipe I could use it in. As I was looking, the thought “Patty Melt” kept coming to mind. 

“Patty Melt, Jayne. You want to make Patty Melts.” 

So, I looked up a recipe for Patty Melts. The first recipe on the Google page was from The Pioneer Woman. I knew it would be good, so I gave it a try. Of course I added my own twist to it. 

Patty Melt Recipe*Warning: this takes 3 frying pans to make it. Just so ya know what to expect at clean-up.

Whatcha Need

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • Bacon
  • Onion 
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Worcestershire Sauce 
  • Texas Toast Bread
  • Butter, softened
  • Garlic

Putting It All Together

IMG_1113Peel and slice the onion. As Ree said, “Not to thick and not too thin.”

IMG_1114Add a tablespoon or two of butter in a frying pan or skillet (whichever you call it) and let the butter melt on low heat. 

IMG_1123Add the onion and saute until tender. While the onion is sauteing,

IMG_1115put the ground beef in a mixing bowl. 

IMG_1117Sprinkle in some salt (to taste).

IMG_1119Sprinkle in some pepper (to taste).

IMG_1121Add a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, and mix it all together. 

IMG_1122Shape into patties and cook in a frying pan (medium-high heat) until cooked like you like them. We are well done, stick me with a fork kind of people. If you hate clean up as much as I do, grill these babies! I’ll have MM do that next time. It will also help to make them faster. 

Here is my twist on Ree’s Patty Melts. BACON!!!!!

IMG_1128Either using another frying pan or using the one you cooked the patties in, or while your sweetie is grilling the patties, fry some bacon. 

IMG_1124In the meantime, butter the Texas toast. 

My next twist…

IMG_1127sprinkle with garlic. Yes, my garlic is in a big pile on the bread. It’s rather hard to sprinkle and take pictures. I used the knife to spread it out.

Toast the bread on a griddle. Add a slice of cheese to each slice of bread.  Let the toast get golden brown and the cheese melt.

Or, you can do like my son did and toast them in the broiler. That would be a faster way for more than one Melt. Why did I just think of that? Next time, I’m using the broiler. 

IMG_1135Now for the fun part! Put the patty on the toast.

IMG_1136 Add the bacon. 

IMG_1138Top it all off with those wonderful onions.

IMG_1139Cover it all with another slice of toast.

MM asked if I had put any mayonnaise on it. UHHH…NO! He had to think about that for a moment. Isn’t Mayonnaise supposed to go on all sandwiches? UHHH…NO!

He got into the taking of the picture. He was telling me to pull out the bacon and the let the onion hang over the side.  Of course he had to take his own picture. 

IMG_20140609_193845He used his phone then emailed it to me. He is finally getting into this blogging thing. 

I mentioned that my son toasted his bread in the broiler. He was helping with Vacation Bible School at the church he goes to. Makes this mama proud! He got home after we had eaten and thought I had used the broiler. He heated all the other stuff up in the microwave. 

Both my guys really enjoyed the Patty Melt. We will be cooking this again this summer. 

Happy Eating!
