Patty Melt

This is perfect for lunch or anytime.

I used swiss cheese but you can use what cheese you like.

1 lb. lean ground beef
8 slices each: bread
4 slices each: swiss cheese
1/8 - 1/4 c. butter
Non stick cooking spray
1 onion sliced
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper
1 T. oil

Remove meat from refrigerator and shape meat into patties. 

Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of hamburger, set aside for a few minutes.

Remove stick of butter from refrigerator and let it set out for a few minutes to soften.

Remove cheese from refrigerator.

Peel, rinse, slice onions, set aside on a plate.

Preheat grill pan to medium to high heat.

Lower heat to medium and spray pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Add hamburger patties and cook on 1 side for 5 - 8 min.

Turn hamburger over and cook on other side for 5 - 8 min. more.

Remove patties from pan, lower heat and add oil. 

Add onions, grill onions for a few minutes.

While hamburgers, onions are cooking, toast bread slices. 

Remove bread from toasters and butter both sides of bread, set aside.

Place the buttered side up of 4 slices of bread on a clean work area or cutting board.

When onions are done, remove onions.

Place bread slices in pan, top bread with burgers.

Layer cheese, onions on the burger and grill on 1 side for a few minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top burgers with with remaining bread slices.

 Flip over and cook on other side for 3 - 5 min more or until brown. 

Makes 4 servings.
