Patty Melt

Indulge in the ultimate comfort food experience with our classic Patty Melt recipe. With tender, juicy beef patties nestled between slices of buttery rye bread, and layers of melted Swiss cheese and caramelized onions, this dish is a nostalgic favorite that’s perfect for any meal.


– 1 lb ground beef (80/20 blend)
– Salt and black pepper to taste
– 2 tablespoons butter, plus extra for spreading
– 8 slices rye bread
– 8 slices Swiss cheese
– 1 large onion, thinly sliced


1. Begin by shaping the ground beef into 4 patties, ensuring they are slightly larger than your bread slices. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter. Once melted, add the thinly sliced onions and cook until caramelized, approximately 10-15 minutes. Remove the onions from the skillet and set them aside.
3. In the same skillet, increase the heat to medium-high and cook the beef patties to your desired level of doneness, approximately 4 minutes per side for medium.
4. Butter one side of each slice of rye bread. Place four slices, buttered side down, on a clean surface. Top each with a slice of Swiss cheese, a beef patty, a quarter of the caramelized onions, another slice of Swiss cheese, and finally, another slice of rye bread, buttered side up.
5. Heat the skillet over medium heat once again. Carefully place the assembled sandwiches in the skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.

Enjoy the irresistible combination of flavors and textures in our Patty Melt—a timeless classic that’s sure to become a favorite in your household!
