Patty Melts Recipe

“My husband often orders patty melts at restaurants, so I started fixing them at home,” says Leah Zimmerman of Ephrata, Pennsylvania. “I added horseradish to give them more zip, and now he loves them my way.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 10 thin slices sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 slices rye bread
  • 2 tablespoons Thousand Island salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 slices process American cheese or Swiss cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet, saute onion in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Remove and keep warm.
