Patty Melt

I recently bought a Weber Cast Iron Griddle for my gas grill. I absolutely love cooking with it. It is just like cooking on a flat top grill. It gets amazingly hot, which is exactly what I need to cook a patty melt. I like a little crust on my patty melt burgers, but with tender juicy insides. And the bread has to be grilled just until it has a little crunch and can stand up to the patty and onions.

Make Them Outside. Or Inside.

You can also make these on your stove top. You’ll want to use a large skillet, preferably cast iron. Or better, use a Griddler from Cuisinart. I really like cooking them outside. As much as I do love burgers cooked over charcoal, I’m a huge fan of cooking them on a griddle too. They always come out fantastic. And the griddle makes it so easy to make a great patty melt like this one.

Also try my taco melt and my copycat of the yummy Frisco melt from Steak ‘n Shake.

  • Place beef into a large bowl along with salt and pepper, to taste, and the Worcestershire sauce. Mix well.
