Applebee's Classic Patty Melt


Recipe from: Lucky

1 burger patty
salt, pepper, granulated garlic, to taste
melted butter, as needed
2 pieces Italian bread
2 tablespoons mayonnaise with roasted garlic and mustard
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 slices Cheddar cheese
½ cup sliced onions

Season one side of the burger with salt, pepper and garlic. Place on grill or in broiler, seasoned side down. Then season the other side. Cook to desired doneness.

While burger is cooking, melt butter in fry pan on medium heat or in electric skillet (set at 350°F). Spread mayonnaise onto bread. Drop bread, dry side down, onto melted pools and swirl to coat (to avoid sticking).

Cover one slice of bread with two slices of Swiss cheese and the other with two slices of Cheddar.

In a separate frying pan, melt butter and sauté sliced onions. Season with salt, pepper and garlic while heating. Place cooked burger patty on top of one cheese topped slice of bread and the sauteed onions on the other. Carefully close and cut sandwich. Serve with your favorite summer side dish.
