I've never had the nerve to try making this sandwich, but it's so gooey and good I don't know what I've been waiting for. A nice change from the ordinary burger.

How to Make INDIANA PATTY MELT

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare the caramelized onions first in 1 Tbsp. butter and set aside. Also make the sauce ahead and store in refrigerator until ready.
  2. Shape the ground beef into four uniform patties and place in a large, hot skillet. Cook as you would any burger, to desired doneness, adding salt, and add 2 slices American cheese and 1 slice of Swiss to each patty. Cover the pan to help the cheese melt. Place on paper towel to drain.
  3. Toast the bread and spread four slices with 2 Tbsp. butter. Spread the sauce on top of butter. Add the warm caramelized onions to four bread slices. Then add the patties and serve.
