BBQ Patty Melt with Smoked Cheddar and Caramelized Onions

BBQ Patty Melt with Smoked Cheddar and Caramelized Onions

Stubbs Patty Melt

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.

Check out the recipe on Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q’s website!

The weather here in the Tampa Bay area has been absolutely gorgeous lately, an has put me in the mood for some grilling action. I’ve had a hankering for a big juicy burger for ages, but I wanted to try something different than a plain old patty with American cheese on a boring bun.

I was at the book store and noticed the Sutter Home Build a Better Burger cook-off cookbook in the bargain section. It inspired me to create a gourmet burger of my own (and also reminded me that I had forgotten to enter last year, again). I didn’t find any one particular recipe that I wanted to use, but it got my creative juices flowing. Fortunately, being a foodie, I usually have all sorts of fancy cheeses, condiments, etc. in my fridge and pantry, so I decided to throw together a “bistro burger” (I thought that name sounded better than: “fancy-schmancy burger”).
