My husband is the quintessential meat and potatoes guy, and his favorite way to enjoy that meat is when it is cooked over an open flame. Unfortunately with the days getting shorter and cooler, it’s hard to find the time to fire up the grill and enjoy a relaxing flame-cooked meal. Instead our afternoon and nights are filled up with my husband and I both working late hours, then coming home and working on the house, plus after school activities and lots of homework. By the time dinner time rolls around, I am doing my best just to get some food on the table. Luckily I have a collection of recipes that take just minutes to cook which are perfect for these busy nights!
One of my husband’s favorite ‘last minute meals’ is my Classic Patty Melt with Sauteed Onions. During the summer I’ll make the patty melts on the grill, but when time is short and we’re wanting that juicy, flame-grilled taste I use Ball Park®Flame Grilled Patties instead.
Ball Park® Patties are fully cooked beef or chicken patties that you can have ready in minutes. They come in 7 amazing varieties including the new Hickory Smoked Bacon and White Cheddar Chicken Patties.
I can simply toss them in the microwave and they’ll be ready to go in just about one minute! I get to have a delicious and filling meal on the table in just minutes, while my husband gets his juicy, flame grilled taste! It’s a win-win situation!
Classic Patty Melt with Sauteed Onions recipe
Before you get started make sure you have these ingredients:
2 – 4 Ball Park® Flame Grilled Patties, Original
1/2 Vidalia onion, sliced
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
Begin by grabbing the onion and chop it in half. Then cut off one end, peel off the skin and start slicing – you don’t want them too thick, or too thin…
Cut off about a tablespoon of butter and toss it in the skillet over medium-low heat. Now grab the onions, throw them in and add a good-sized splash of Worcestershire sauce. Stir them around and let them slowly cook until they are tender, yet still have just a bit of crunch.
A few minutes before the onions finish, add a pat of butter to a clean skillet and set the heat to medium-low. While the butter is melting, you will have the perfect amount of time to place the Ball Park® patties on a microwave-safe dish, cover them with a paper towel, and start them cooking for 65 seconds (don’t go over 65 seconds as we are going to have to place them in the skillet for a few moments for the cheese to melt all over the beef).
While those are heating, throw a piece of rye bread in the skillet with the now-melted butter. Swirl it around so the outside surface really soaks up the butter.
Now lay a piece of Swiss cheese on top…
and then add a patty (which you have perfectly timed to come out of the microwave right about now).
Next grab a nice amount of those yummy onions and put them on top of the patty…
followed by another slice of Swiss cheese (you can never have too much cheese on a patty melt)…
top with another slice of rye.
Let the first side turn a nice golden brown and get crisp then flip it to the other side, adding a tad more butter.
All you have to do now is let the other side get golden brown and crisp, while watching the cheese turn into all that melted goodness. Once finished, place it on a plate, slice it in half, and enjoy!
