How to Make Patty Melt Special


  1. Slice the green pepper and onion into long thin pieces; set aside
  2. Slice 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.
  3. While 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.
  4. Butter back sides of bread slices and use patties, cheese, bacon, and sautéed vegetables to build a sandwich. Grill to you liking and enjoy!!
  5. Tip 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.
