Tasty Tuesday- Gluten Free Patty Melts

Hey y'all! Guess what I'm having for supper tonight?

Serves 4

4 hamburger patties, or 1lb hamburger meat split into 4 patties (if you can afford it, go grass fed)

8 slices Udi's Gluten Free whole grain bread

1 large sweet onion (Vidalia or 1013 work great)

4 slices provolone cheese (Swiss is also good)

2 tbsp butter


Slice onion in half through middle, then turn each half flat side down on board and cut half-moon shaped slices, thin as you can get them. Heat large skillet to medium-high, add a few thin slices of butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook onions for 5 minutes on medium-high without burning, then turn heat down to medium or slightly less, and continue to cook onions, stirring occasionally, until onions reach a deep, caramel color.

Set onions aside to cool, and grill or pan-fry your hamburgers to doneness of choice. I like a nice medium burger.

While hamburgers cook, toast bread. Gluten free bread requires toasting to hold up to the sandwich. Use the rest of the butter to butter one side of each piece of toast. Chop cooked onions into bite-sized pieces.

Melt cheese on top of hamburgers as they cook the last minute. Then assemble patty melts with two slices of bread, butter on the outside, patties, onions and cheese on the inside. Grill or pan fry each sandwich for 30-60 seconds to brown butter on outside of bread.

Serve hot.

Now off to make supper!
