I’ve been on a serious patty melt kick after I recently had a great one at Me Me’s Diner in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. While most patty melts also include mayonnaise, I stir a little Sriracha in for a kick of flavor and spice.
A patty melt is a sandwich consisting of a hamburger patty, melted cheese (I use Cheddar), and caramelized onions, all placed in between two slices of bread. It’s essentially a hybrid burger and sandwich. I press the sandwiches using a weight, making sure the bread crisps up so that it’s a buttery golden brown.

This patty melt is amazing! I have this recipe in my regular rotation and it’s always something I look forward to making/eating. Super decadent but the arugula adds a nice freshness at the end. Yum!
