Greetings from Tink World!
So, I had a bulk pack in the fridge. As usual, I used part of it to make burgers and put the rest in containers in the fridge. I decided to try making patty melts again. This time I needed a dipping sauce for the kids. They will eat pretty much anything if they can dip it in something.
These patty melts will totally rock your world! They are one of the best things I've had in a long time. Recipe is below!
What you'll need:
1 lb. Tink's Ground Beef
1-2 small onions
Cheese of choice (I had sharp cheddar on hand)
Thick slices of bread
Garlic powder, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp. mayo
3 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. smoky BBQ sauce
1/4 tsp. garlic
1/4-1/2 tsp. hot sauce (optional)
Slice the onions first. Melt butter in a skillet and add onions. Cook until caramelized, about 25 minutes. While the onions are cooking, mix up the secret sauce. It gets better the longer it sits.
Make the patties next. Mix garlic powder, salt, pepper and a couple shots of Worcestershire sauce with the ground beef. Just sprinkle a little of each and mix well.
Melt a little butter over med-high heat in a skillet and add patties once it's hot. You'll want thin patties 3-4 oz. each. To make sure the patties don't turn into burger balls, place something heavy, like a bacon press or a smaller skillet, on top. Cook patties about 5-6 minutes total, 3 minutes per side. They will cook quickly because they are thin. Place patties on a plate and set aside.
Get our your griddle or another skillet and more butter. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Brown the inside first. Once the side without butter has been toasted, flip over. Add patty, cheese, onions and sauce. Then, add the top piece of bread, turn down heat and place bacon press or small skillet on top. This helps the cheese melt more quickly and keeps the sandwich together.
Flip sandwich and toast the other side and turn heat up slightly. You don't want to get it too brown, but you want to make sure the cheese is melted. The melt will spend about 5-7 minutes, depending on the temperature of the pan.
Repeat for each sandwich. 1 lb. of ground beef will make 4-5 patties.
As for markets, be sure to come see us at the Decatur Farmers Market on Saturday, August 20. We'll have a special with roasts and steaks. Check Facebook on Saturday for more information on this week's special!
Well, that's all for now. Have a great week. We'll see you at the market!
