Classic Patty Melt


For the patty:

4 lean ground beef or turkey patties (you can also use plant-based patties for a vegetarian option)
Salt and pepper to taste
For the caramelized onions:

2 large onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon brown sugar (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
For the sandwich:

8 slices of whole-grain or whole wheat bread (use low-calorie bread if you prefer)
4 slices of reduced-fat Swiss cheese (or your choice of reduced-fat cheese)


Caramelized Onions:
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
Add the thinly sliced onions and cook them slowly, stirring occasionally, until they become soft and brown, about 20-30 minutes.
If you like, you can add a teaspoon of brown sugar to help with caramelization.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
While the onions are caramelizing, season the beef or turkey patties with salt and pepper.
Grill or cook the patties in a non-stick pan until they reach your desired level of doneness.
Assembling the Patty Melt:
Place a slice of cheese on top of each patty while they are still hot, allowing it to melt slightly.
Toast the bread slices in a toaster or on a griddle.
Assemble the sandwiches:
Lay out 4 slices of toasted bread.
Top each slice with a cooked patty and cheese.
Add a portion of caramelized onions on top of the cheese.
Complete the sandwiches with the remaining slices of toasted bread.
