The next time you’ve got a craving for a juicy burger, give it a BBQ flavored twist and take it up another notch by ditching the boring old bun and making it a pressed patty melt.
To set it apart from the standard patty melt, I gave it a BBQ-inspired makeover my mixing ground beef and pork along with Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q Sauce in the patty mix. I also put Stubb’s Bar-B-Q sauce on top of the cooked patties in the sandwich and added sweet caramelized onions and savory smoked Cheddar. This patty melt is like a barbecue sandwich, burger, and gooey grilled cheese all in one! Just like Texas BBQ tradition, serve it with pickles tucked into the patty melt or on the side.
Great for any time of the year, this can be made on your stove top, as no grill is needed to create this quick and easy comfort food classic.
