Patty Melt with Parmesan Potato Wedges

Patty Melt with Parmesan Potato Wedges

A hamburger patty covered with melted cheese and a heap of sauteed onions, served on grilled Rye Bread. If you are tired of the same old cheeseburger, try something different like a Patty Melt.

Typically Patty Melts are served on Rye bread, but I decided to shake it up a bit by serving ours on Pumpernickel bread…delish! Serve these beauties with Parmesan Potato Wedges (recipe follows) and dinner is done!

A Patty Melt is delicious version of a cheeseburger.
Recipe type: Main
Yield: 2 servings
  • 2 ground beef patties
  • 4 slices Pumpernickel bread or Rye bread
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
Preparation Instructions
  1. In a large non-stick skillet, saute the onions in the butter until they are soft, about 4-5 minutes.
  2. Divide the onions between two pieces of bread and place a slice of cheese on top of the onions.
  3. Meanwhile, fry or grill the ground beef patties until desired doneness and place them on top of the onions and cheese. Top the patties with the other two slices of cheese and place the two remaining slices of bread on top to make the sandwiches.
  4. Place the sandwiches into the skillet and toast each side or if you have a Panini press, grill the two sandwiches until they are toasty and the cheese has melted.
The Patty Melt was created by William "Tiny" Naylor sometime in the 40's or 50's at his chain of Southern California coffee shops called Tiny Naylor's.
