Pan Fry


1 lb
ground hamburger -- your choice (i use 90%)
1 large
1 pkg
onion soup mix -- your choice (i use generic)
4-6 slice
bacon -- your choice (i use thick cut hickory)
1/4 large
green bell pepper
1/4 large
onion -- your choice (i use yellow)
1-2 tsp
minced garlic -- fresh or jar/store bought
8 slice
rye bread -- your choice (i use sourdough or marble rye from the store bakery section)
1-2 Tbsp
butter or margarine of your choice (i use a heart healthy margarine)
4 slice
swiss cheese -- your choice (i use deli sliced)
pepper or other seasonings you may like


1Slice the green pepper and onion into long thin pieces; set aside
2Slice bacon strips in half and fry to your liking; drain and set aside. Remove some grease from the pan. Let the rest of the grease cool a bit then add sliced vegetables to sauté slowly. Toss in garlic and any seasonings you may like. I only used fine ground black pepper. Set aside.
3While bacon, then vegetables are cooking, place ground beef in a bowl. Add the egg and onion mix packet. Mix thoroughly and make and fry four patties.
4Butter back sides of bread slices and use patties, cheese, bacon, and sautéed vegetables to build a sandwich. Grill to you liking and enjoy!!
5Tip 1: prepping the bacon, vegetables, and uncooked patties one day can save time on making the sandwiches on another day.
Tip 2: uncooked patties can be individually wrapped in wax paper and stored in a plastic bag or storage bin.
