What is a Patty Melt?

A patty melt is a meaty, tasty that is fried to perfection with caramelized onions. The combination of the two burger patties and onions are placed between toasted bread to make a patty melt.

Is a Patty Melt the same as a Cheeseburger?

It is similar to a cheeseburger but it is just what you grew up calling it. This patty melt has been made in restaurants since the 1970s and still enjoyed today.

Ingredients needed - sourdough bread, ground beef, onion, butter, swiss cheese

Ingredients: 

  • Sourdough Bread 
  • Ground Beef 
  • White Onion, sliced 
  • Butter 
  • Slices Swiss Cheese 

How to Make Patty Melt on a Blackstone Griddle: 

  • Preheat the Blackstone Grill over medium high heat.  Divide the ground beef into 2 even balls (approximately 3 oz each).  
  • Butter one side of each piece of the sourdough bread with 1 tablespoon of the butter. 
  • Melt the remaining butter on one side of the griddle.  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.  Season with salt and pepper and garlic powder.
  • 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.  
  • Place a piece of the Swiss cheese on each patty.  
  • Put the bread on the blackstone grill butter side down and toast the bread.

  • Cut in half and the patty melt is ready to serve and enjoy!

Patty Melt Blackstone Tips:

  • Bread Type – Make sure to use rye bread, sourdough bread or artisan bread for this recipe.  White bread will fall apart if used in this recipe. 
  • Caramelizing Onions – When cooking the onions, let the onions cook slowly to enhance the flavor.
  • Cooking Meat – We recommend cooking the meat in the buttery onion flavor for enhancing the flavor.

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.
