Classic Patty Melt Recipe

This classic Patty Melt Recipe is jam-packed with caramelized onions, melted cheese, and a seared hamburger patty on tasty bread for the perfect sandwich.

My family often asks for this over the classic cheeseburger because they like it so much.


– unsalted butter – yellow onions – apple cider vinegar – avocado oil – ground chuck – swiss cheese – rye bread

Add the butter to a rondeau or a large cast iron skillet and heat over medium heat. Add the onions once the butter is melted, gently season with salt, and combine.

Cover and let the onions stand untouched for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the lid and stir the onions for 1 to 2 minutes.

Turn the heat to low-to-low medium and stir every 6 to 8 minutes for 30 to 35 minutes or until very dark brown.

Form the ground beef into 3 large patties and place them on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper.

Slice the bread and shred the cheese.
