Gather the essentials: ground beef, Swiss cheese slices, rye bread, onions, butter, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.

Patty Preparation

Season the ground beef with Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Shape the seasoned beef into patties of desired size and thickness.

Caramelizing Onions

Sauté thinly sliced onions in butter over low heat until golden brown and caramelized, adding a touch of sweetness and depth of flavor to the patty melt.

Cooking the Patties

Cook the beef patties in a skillet over medium-high heat until they are browned on both sides and cooked to your desired level of doneness.

Assembling the Melt

Layer Swiss cheese slices on top of the cooked beef patties in the skillet. Allow the cheese to melt slightly before transferring the patties to a plate.

Toasting the Bread

In the same skillet, toast slices of rye bread until golden brown and crispy, adding a rich and hearty base to the patty melt.

Building the Sandwich

Place a beef patty with melted Swiss cheese on a slice of toasted rye bread. Top with a generous portion of caramelized onions, then cover with another slice of toasted bread.

Final Touches

Press the sandwich lightly with a spatula to meld the flavors together and ensure the cheese is perfectly melted.
