Oh my favorite diner food buttery,greasy,burger topped with onions and swiss cheese covered with rye bred, no burger is better than this.
1 stick Butter
1 whole Large Onion, Sliced
1-1/2 pound Ground Beef
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
8 slices Swiss Cheese
8 slices Rye Bread
In a medium skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat. Throw in the sliced onions and cook slowly for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden brown and soft.
In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, garlic, salt & pepper, and Worcestershire. Form into 4 patties.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a separate skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties on both sides until totally done in the middle.
Assemble patty melts this way: Slice of bread, slice of cheese, hamburger patty, 1/4 of the cooked onions, another slice of cheese, and another slice of bread. On a clean griddle or in a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter and grill the sandwiches over medium heat until golden brown. Remove the sandwiches and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet. Turn the sandwiches to the skillet, flipping them to the other side. Cook until golden brown and crisp, and until cheese is melted.
