I have always loved Patty Melts but for some reason never make them at home. So when i came across the recipe for a healthier version of a Patty Melt in the Food Network Magazine i decided to give it a try! The recipe is a little different than the traditional Patty Melt but still really nummy!!
To get started, heat olive oil in nonstick skillet and add onions. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes or until soft.
Push the onions to one side of the pan, add the mushrooms and cook until browned, about 2 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper, then mix the mushrooms and onions together and cook until the onions are golden, about 10 more minutes.
Add the vinegar and 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and keep warm.
Meanwhile, mix the turkey, beef and the remaining Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Shape into 4 equal-size patties.
Either cook the patties on a grill or wipe out the skillet that was used for the mushrooms and onions and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Over medium-high heat cook until browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook through, about 1 to 2 more minutes.
Divide the onions and mushroom among 4 bread slices....
Top with a slice of cheese, a patty, another slice of cheese and another slice of bread. Wipe out the skillet; add another 1 tablespoon olive oil and place over medium heat. Cook the sandwiches in two batches until the bread is toasted and the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes per side, adding more olive oil if needed.
