Patty Melts with Secret Sauce

by 247tasty

Melt sandwiches are the best! Easy to put together, and quick to make. This recipe uses the classic combination of ground beef patty, caramelized onions (I’m obsessed), and cheese. The secret sauce gives this sandwich that creamy, and flavorful balance that perfectly compliments the sandwich. Just make sure to not overcook the patties, as this makes the sandwich juicy and gives it more flavor. This quickly becomes my family’s favorite; my kids love it, and I’m crazy about it. Unlike other melt sandwiches, this is not overwhelming, but plain delicious!


1½ pounds ground beef
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon of kosher salt
½ teaspoon of ground black pepper
12 slices sourdough bread
½ cup of Secret Sauce
3 medium Vidalia onions, thinly sliced
6 slices Cheddar cheese
8 tablespoons of unsalted butter

How to make Patty Melts with Secret Sauce

Step 1: Combine the ground beef, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix until incorporated.

Step 2: Shape the ground beef mixture into 6 oval patties.

Step 3: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion and stir occasionally for about 35 minutes until soft and golden brown.

Step 4: Place the patties in a large iron skillet and cook them over medium-high heat for 2 minutes on each side or until browned and cooked through. Then, remove the patties from the skillet.

Step 5: Meanwhile, layer 1 slice of bread with 1 tablespoon of secret sauce, 2-3 tablespoons of caramelized onion, 1 slice of cheese, 1 patty, and top with another 1 tablespoon of secret sauce. Grab 1 slice of bread, place it on top, and repeat the process for the remaining bread and patties.

Step 6: Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the sandwiches in batches for about 3 minutes on each side. Flip once until golden brown and heated through. Add the remaining butter to the skillet if needed. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
