Instructions

  • Before I grilled the burger
  • Melt 2 to 3 tablespoons of butter on the flat grill and toasted the bread.
  • Instead of using all Rye bread, I used a combination of Rye and Pumpernickel.
  • I like the bread I used. It was made by Pepperidge Farms.
  • While the bread was toasting, I melted a slice of Swiss cheese on one slice of the bread.
  • PREPARE THE RYE BREAD
  • After toasting the bread, I removed it from the griddle and grilled the burgers.
  • Once the burgers were almost done,
  • add another piece of swiss cheese to each burger.
  • BUILD THE PATTY MELT
  • Place the piece of the rye bread with the melted swiss cheese on the bottom of the plate.
  • Next, Add the burger (or two) with a piece of the melted Swiss cheese on each burger to the bread.
  • Also, place onions and then a piece of bacon on the burger.
  • Finally, Slather some sauce on the other slice of rye bread and place it on top of the onions and bacon. Enjoy!
