When I was a kid the patty melt was a standard at the local dinner. I remember the smell of the onions and beef searing on the grill was mouthwatering good. This recipe recreated that memory and puts it into a super high bracket.
You are going to love every ounce of this sandwich. You can prepare it with or without onions and I encourage you not to add any condiments until you have the pleasure of savoring it just as it is!
Oh my goodness there is just so much to love about this sandwich! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and I hope it brings back some really sweet memories.
Bon appetit my sweet hungry friends!
