Alright, we’re smack dead in the middle of this godforsaken pandemic, most of us are still homebound. It’s not getting any easier, and you’ve probably cooked your go-to recipes a few times over. Money is getting tight, there are still a few more meals to cook, before we are allowed back out. If you’re living in one of the major cities of the US, then there is probably a riot going on outside as well. Stay inside. I know you’re in need of a new recipe. This one is actually a classic, but I bet most of you haven’t thought of it. It’s delicious, easy, inexpensive, and kids are definitely going to like it!
What you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 stick of butter
- Worcestershire sauce
- 8 slices Swiss cheese
- 8 slices of bread
Add 2 tbsp butter to a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until golden brown,
Form 4 patties out of the ground beef and season them with salt, pepper and a dash of Worcestershire sauce on both sides, press it into the patties. Add 2 tbsp to a larger skillet and cook the patties until cooked though.
Time to assemble the Patty Melts! Layer them like this: 1 slice of bread, 1 slice of cheese, 1 patty, 1/4 of the onions, 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of bread.
Now you’re basically going to make grilled cheeses with the stacked sandwiches. Add 1 tbsp butter in a clean skillet and melt it. Place 2 sandwiches in the skillet and let them brown nicely. Add another tbsp of butter to the skillet, turn the sandwiches over, and also brown that side. Repeat with the other two sandwiches. Serve with a garden salad!
Bon Appétit, and be safe!
