Classic Patty Melt

When you'd rather taste the patty and not the bread this is the one you want. The Patty Melt is such a classic.  The taste is unbelievable.  The cheese oozes over a thick patty of beef covered with sauteed onions and mushrooms.  This recipe will make four burgers.

Patty Melt

1 1/2 lb Ground Beef
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs garlic salt
1 tbs lemon pepper
1 medium onion sliced
1 lb mushroom sliced
8 slices sandwich thins
4 slices Swiss cheese

Mix ground beef with next three ingredients and form into four patties at least 1 1/2 inches thick.  Cover and set in refrigerator for 30 minutes.  Place onions and mushrooms in foil and drizzle with olive oil.  Place on heated grill at least 15 minutes before meat is added.  Leave vegetables sauteing until meat is cooked.

Cook hamburgers on grill until done topping with cheese just before removed from heat.   Toast bread on grill and  place each patty on one bottom slice of bread topping with sauteed vegetables.  Serve with jalapeno slices and sweet pickles if desired.

Lighten it up:

Use ground turkey in place of ground beef.  Replace thin sliced bread with Potato Bread and Swiss cheese with fat free cheese.
