THE RECIPE

Smoked Blue Cheese Patty Melt

A blue ribbon-worthy patty melt

Take the simplicity of a grilled cheese sandwich and combine it with the juicy beef of a hamburger, and you’ve got the makings of a really good patty melt. This sandwich is half grilled cheese, half burger, and all mouth-watering goodness. Patty melts are a diner classic that usually comes with swiss or cheddar cheese on top of rye bread with onions and ground beef. To kick things up from basic to sophisticated, Brandy sprinkles crumbled smoked blue cheese over sautéed onions and tender ground beef. Just one bite will deliver a combination of sweet, tangy, creamy, and juicy flavor. The same skillet is used for the whole recipe, that way all the yummy flavors of the beef and onions gets absorbed into the crust of the sandwich. This is a blue cheese patty melt that you won’t find at your average diner, but you can savor it at your dinner table or from your lunch box with this delicious recipe.
