A Patty Melt Day

17 Feb

Patty Melt

Made with butter, onions, ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper, Swiss cheese, and sourdough bread.

A lot of the recipes I make I either see on the Food Network or in one of the food magazines I get each month.  I usually decide what to make based on:

  • What I feel like eating that day
  • How delectable the dish looks on television or in the magazines
  • Observing the whole process involved in making a dish because I don’t like overly complicated recipes that would wear me out

Today was a simple patty melt day.

This turned out to be a pretty good burger, but I must say I think I prefer a different type of cheese other than Swiss for my burgers—like maybe cheddar.  I also missed my ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise toppings.

I didn’t want to turn the burger into something else entirely, so I opted to eat it as is.  And though it was good, all I thought about was cheddar cheese and ketchup during the eating process.

Recipe for—Patty Melts

So, if you have nothing else to do today, try a patty melt the recipe way or spruce it up and make it your way.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  When you’re missing and wanting ketchup and cheddar cheese, just go get the ketchup and cheddar cheese.  Life’s too short not to have the condiments and side items you really want.

    If I ever make these, I’ll heed your taste buds and go for cheddar and ketchup😉

      Good thinking.

    I’m not sure about the life lesson there. Isn’t there something to be said for trying out something wholly off the wall because it’s what you have available rather than because it’s what you want? This is how I discovered I kind of like grated parmesan cheese (from the green canisters) works pretty well on grilled cheese sandwiches when the actual sliced cheese I want has run out. (It doesn’t melt uniformly, but that’s part of the appeal, to my mouth.)

      Lol! I guess.

    Mm. Patty melts remind me of college — one of the few edible things at the cafeteria near my dorm that was quicker and less disgusting than unidentifiable lunchmeat sandwiches. I love them! I’m a bigger fan of cheddar than swiss also. 😉 Onions though, mmmm! I say do what you want.

    • LFFL February 18, 2014 at 7:44 pm #

      Yep. Make it how you want it.

    Oh my Lord, that looks scrumptious…or however you spell good.

    • LFFL February 18, 2014 at 7:43 pm #

      Lol. My sentiments exactly.

  11. Nancy February 18, 2014 at 10:05 am #

    Looks really tasty…I love good patty melt!

    • LFFL February 18, 2014 at 7:43 pm #

      For the love of burgers!

  12. foodisthebestshitever February 18, 2014 at 2:36 am #

    I would sort that out.

    Swiss is really good on a burger, but it doesn’t melt as easily as Cheddar. If we are doing Swiss, then I put it on top of the burger when it is almost completely done, cover the pan, and let the steam mix with the cheese to make it softer – and more melt-y!

    • LFFL February 18, 2014 at 12:12 am #

      Good way to go. I like Swiss cheese to an extent–just not as much as cheddar cheese. Maybe I should have done one slice of Swiss, once slice of cheddar.

      • judilyn February 18, 2014 at 12:14 am #

        You could melt the Swiss on the burger, and the Cheddar on the bun so they are both melted evenly. Sounds good to me!

        Thumbs up!

      • Ciara Darren February 18, 2014 at 7:03 pm #

        That might work. I love my Swiss cheese but it can come across as a little strong!

      • LFFL February 18, 2014 at 7:45 pm #

        Yeah it does and it has that somewhat funny smell, too.

So what do you think? Hmmm.....? Tell me, Tell me.
