Ingredients

PATTY MELT

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 yellow onions, sliced thin
  • 1 pound ground beef, we like 80/20
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices Texas toast
  • 8 teaspoons mayonnaise

AIOLI SPREAD

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

Instructions

  1. In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add onions and cook until caramelized (about 15-20 minutes), stirring often. Add water as needed to prevent burning. Remove from skillet and tent to keep warm.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, Worchestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

  3. Make 4 square patties (a little larger than the bread). Each patty should be about ¼ inch thick.
  4. Wipe the skillet and set heat to medium-high. Add the hamburger patties in batches (two at a time) and cook 1-2 minutes per side. Remove patties from the skillet and set aside.

  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, pepper, garlic, parsley, and ketchup to make the aioli spread.

  6. Top 4 slices of bread with cheese, then hamburger patty, then onions, and then another slice of cheese, aioli spread, and top with a slice of bread.

  7. Spread 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise on the top.

  8. Wipe out skillet and set heat to medium. Add sandwiches to pan, mayo side down in batches (two at a time). Place a weighted pan on top to hold the sandwich firmly in the pan. Cook until golden brown (about 3 minutes). Remove the weighted pan. Spread 1 teaspoon of mayo on the top slice of bread and flip. Cook for 3 additional minutes (or until golden brown). Serve.
