When was the last time you had a patty melt?  It’s definitely been a while for me. I think the last one I had was at the local diner  Maybe a year or more ago.

So when I got home today and Victor said he was craving a patty melt, I knew just what to do.  Start frying onions.

The secret to a good patty melt is the onions.  Cooked in butter until they’re deep golden-sweet.   I had a small red onion and a small yellow onion.  I sliced them both up and let them cook for about 30 minutes.

I fired up the grill and grilled the burgers, brought them in, put the sandwiches together – with American cheese – and set them into a hot skillet.

They were dynamite!

They were even better than I thought they were going to be – and I knew they were going to be good!

Gooey cheesy-oniony heaven.

The potatoes were over-kill.  I think I ate three of them.  I was focused on that burger and didn’t want to put it down.

It really was that good.

So if you haven’t had one of these in a while, I highly recommend you taking the time to make one.

And go easy on the potatoes.
