Patty Melts are a classic diner food. Back in my early 20’s I worked at a little whole in the wall bar and grill. The customers were drunken fisherman fresh off the river and ranch workers from the local cattle ranches.
I was the waitress, cook, server, busser, beer slinger and bouncer all at once. Gosh, I don’t miss that job!
But I did learn how to make an amazing patty melt and pour a perfect draft beer!
The first step is to get those onions started. It will take a good 20-25 minutes to accomplish that gorgeous golden color. The onions can be cooking while you prep all of the other elements.
You will want to cook the onions a little darker than the photo below. My kitchen got crazy in those final moments and I didn’t get that last picture of the onions. A pan was smoking, I kept dropping things and oil was spilled. It happens.
After you get the onions started. Time to move on to the patties. A simple mix of ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and worcestershire sauce. I like to form my patties in an oval shape so that it fits perfectly in between the slices of bread.
I made two beef patties because I like my patty melts extra meaty. But you can easily get three patties out of one pound of ground beef.
This Hidden Valley Garlic Parmesan Spread tastes fantastic and really gives the patty melt something extra. You will want to spread it on generously. It adds flavor and a creaminess that is unbelievable!
Here is where the magic happens. Fry that baby up in butter!
