Never had these before, but it was a total hit! Saw my hubby sneak another one after finishing the first!

The Classic Patty Melt, a staple of American comfort food, beautifully marries the savory satisfaction of a hamburger with the toasty, cheesy goodness of a grilled cheese sandwich. Dating back to the cozy diners of the 1940s, this dish serves as a hearty and warming meal, ideal for bringing joy and comfort to your dinner table. Accompanied by crispy potato chips, creamy coleslaw, or a simple dill pickle spear, you can recreate the quintessential diner experience right at home. For those seeking a lighter touch, a crisp garden salad also pairs wonderfully with the rich flavors of the Patty Melt.
