Hey Everyone!

After a wonderful lunch at Brandon’s grandparents house, I decided to skip our usual Chinese and save money. I’m making patty melt’s, which has become one of my favorite dishes. It’s soo easy to fix, and really tasty! Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

Patty Melt Panini

From Family Circle Magazine, and made my own.

  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 large Vidalia onion, sliced
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 8 slices of bread (we use white)
  • 8 slices of American cheese
  • Thousand Island Dressing
  1. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, 2o minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, oregano and pepper in a medium bowl.  Shape into 4 patties, mimicking the shape of the bread.
  3. Heat a panini press or George Foreman grill to medium hot. Grill beef patties for 3-4 minutes or until done. Remove to a plate.
  4. Place 4 slices of bread down, top with one slice of cheese, one beef patty, 1/2 cup of onions, one slice of cheese and another slice of bread. Grill 2 sandwiches for 3 minutes, then repeated with remaining 2 sandwiches. Serve with salad dressing.

This is wonderful with the salad really makes it different from other patty melts I’ve had. Let me know if you make any changes:)

    Can you use ranch instead of 1000 island?
