Copycat Freddy’s Patty Melt Recipe:

We love making Blackstone Griddle Recipes. They always turn out perfectly and cooking this Blackstone Patty Melt gives it that old fashion taste. The caramelized onions and cheese are topped on a smash burger and placed between rye bread.

This griddle sandwich is a family favorite as we love the Patty Melt’s at Freddy’s. We love making copycat recipes as it saves me time and money.

This flavorful patty melt is easy to make with simple ingredients. Some may call it a sandwich others call it a burger, it is the perfect blend of both. It doesn’t matter what you call it, it is delicious. You might also like Blackstone Freddy’s Steakburger Recipe.

What is a Patty Melt?

A patty melt is usually made with two hamburger patties that is topped with slice cheese and grilled onions. The burgers, grilled cheese and onions are placed between two slices of bread. We used rye bread but you can also sourdough bread.

Ingredients needed - rye bread, beef, onion, butter, cheese

Ingredients: 

How to Make Freddy’s Patty Melt at Home: 

  • Preheat the Blackstone Grill over medium low heat or high heat (approximately 450 degrees F).  Divide the ground beef into 2 even balls (approximately 3 oz each).  
  • Butter one side of each piece of the Rye bread with 1 Tablespoon of the butter. 
  • Melt the remaining butter on one side of the flat top.  Then top the melted butter with the sliced onions.  Sauté the onions in the butter until they are caramelized (3-5 minutes).  
  • While the onions are cooking, place the ground beef on the grill.  Put a piece of parchment paper on top of the beef and use a spatula or a burger press to smash the meat into 2 thin patties.

  • Let the patties cook until they are golden browned and crispy (2-3 minutes).  Then flip the patties over (do not smash) and cook the other side for 2-3 minutes until it is also browned and crispy.

  • Cut in half and the patty melt is ready to serve and enjoy! I like to season with salt and pepper.

What to Serve with a Patty Melt?

When planning on serving a patty melt they are best served fresh. But when making them we like to serve with different sides. Here are some of our favorites:

How to Store:

These patty melts are best served fresh.  If you do have leftovers, I would store the hamburger and onions separately from the bread. Place in a air tight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

How to Reheat:

Reheat patty melt in the microwave or on the Blackstone Griddle if you want to toast some more bread.
