Patty Melts

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!!

Waiting to be devoured.. the burger was made with turkey and ground beef... makes you feel a little better about eating it!!

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.

Lastly... enjoy!!! We did! :)


  1. This looks like something that my husband and father would love! I may have to make this for them when I see them both at the same time!!

  2. This sounds yummy! I think it may be our Friday night meal.

  3. I love a good patty melt and your version sounds like one that would go over big at my house, especially with those onions. Yum!
