Patty Melt Sandwiches


Do you love grilled cheese? Well, lets kick it up a notch with this Patty Melt Sandwich. It’s almost a cross between a hamburger and a leftover meatloaf sandwich—it’s the best. Give it a shot and let us know what you think the next time you’re in!


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 10 ounces button mushrooms, sliced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 10 ounces 93% lean ground turkey
  • 6 ounces lean ground beef sirloin
  • 8 slices multigrain bread
  • 8 thin slices Monterey jack or Swiss cheese (2 to 3 ounces)


  • Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Push to one side of the skillet; add the mushrooms and cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then mix the mushrooms and onions together and cook until the onions are golden, about 10 more minutes. Add the vinegar and 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, mix the turkey, beef and the remaining 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Shape into 4 equal-size oval patties.
  • Wipe out the skillet, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and place over medium-high heat. Season the patties with salt and pepper and cook until browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook through, 1 to 2 more minutes.
  • Divide the onions and mushrooms among 4 bread slices; top with a slice of cheese, a patty, another slice of cheese and another bread slice. Wipe out the skillet; add 1 tablespoon olive oil and place over medium heat. Cook the sandwiches in two batches until the bread is toasted and the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes per side, adding the remaining 2 teaspoons oil as needed.
