Ultimate Patty Melt

Talk about mouthwatering melt in your mouth goodness, this is the Ultimate Patty Melt! This recipe comes to us from my 17 year old daughters and their friend.  Last weekend as they were reading Seventeen magazine they came across this recipe for the Ultimate Patty Melt and asked if I had everything to make it, and I did. So, off to the kitchen they went!

Ultimate Patty Melt
from Seventeen Magazine (with a few adjustments from my girls)

1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, very finely chopped
1-1/4 lb ground sirloin (we use 1/2 hamburger and 1/2 turkey meat a little healthier)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
8 slices of favorite sandwich bread
3 tbsp butter
8 slices Swiss cheese
8 slices bacon
8 slices tomato
salt and pepper

Place a skillet on medium heat with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Add onion to the pan and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Place the onions in a bowl and wipe the skillet clean. Let the onions cool slightly and then mix them with the hamburger meat, Worcestershire sauce and some salt & pepper, mix thoroughly with a spoon to combine.

Divide meat mixture into four and form thin burgers. Add patties to the hot pan and cook until done. While the burgers are cooking butter one side of bread (spread mustard on the inside, if desired we did NOT). After the burgers are finished cooking, make them into stacks. Starting with bread (butter on the outside), slice of cheese, patty, bacon, tomato, another slice of cheese and other slice of bread (butter on the outside).

Wipe the skillet once more and add the stacks back onto the hot skillet over medium heat. Cook until the bread is toasted on both sides and the cheese is melted. Serve this ULTIMATE PATTY MELT to your friends, they will LOVE IT!
