Patty Melts with Secret Sauce


For the patty melts:

  • 1 lb. Ground beef
  • 6 Slices rye bread
  • ½ tsp. Onion powder
  • ½ tsp. Garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 Slices cheddar cheese
  • 6 Sliced provolone cheese
  • 6 Tbsp. Butter softened and unsalted

For the secret sauce:

  • ¼ C. Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. Chopped bacon pieces
  • 3 Tbsp. Ketchup
  • 1 tsp. Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Relish


  • Form the meat into 3 flattened patties with roughly the same shape as your bread slices.
  • Season the meat on both sides with the onion powder, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook the patties over medium high heat on the stove until cooked through. Remove from the pan.
  • While the meat is cooking, mix together the ingredients for the sauce until well incorporated.
  • Wipe the skillet used to cook the meat clean and reduce the heat to medium.
  • Butter one side of each piece of bread well.
  • Place three pieces of bread buttered side down in the skillet.
  • Top each slice of bread with 2 slices of provolone cheese, a meat patty and 2 slices of cheddar cheese.
  • Put a little bit of the sauce on the non-buttered side of the remaining slices of bread, and place them sauce side down on top of the patty melts in the skillet.
  • Flip the patty melts over once the provolone has melted and the one side of the bread is well toasted.
  • Toast the other side of the bread well, and then serve.
