Patty Melts

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. Only Alberta Beef lean ground beef or sirloin
  • 8 slices rye bread
  • 8 slices provolone, cheddar, havarti or mozzarella cheese
  • soft butter or mayonnaise
  • canola or olive oil, for cooking

How to Make It

  1. In a large, heavy skillet set over medium-high heat, cook the onion in a drizzle of oil for about 5 minutes, until soft and golden.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Meanwhile, shape the beef into patties, sprinkle with salt, and cook in another drizzle of oil in the skillet for 4-5 minutes per side, or until done to your liking.
  3. Spread slices of bread with soft butter or mayo, and make a sandwich with a burger patty, caramelized onions and cheese.
  4. Add a little more oil to the pan and cook the sandwiches until golden on both sides. If necessary, cover with a lid or piece of foil to help them heat through.
