Delicious Turkey Patty Melts

Hubby created this dinner for us recently and I wanted to share it with you because it was so good. I've never had a patty melt before because I don't eat red meat, so this is our turkey version.

Makes 4 sandwiches

• 8 slices of bread
• 1 lb ground turkey
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1 large onion, sliced
• 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
• 2 tablespoons brown sugar
• 4 slices mozzarella cheese

In a small pan, heat vegetable oil and pour in onions. When onions start to soften, add brown sugar and grill for 5 more minutes.

Roll ground turkey into 4 patties. In a large pan, melt 1 T butter and then add turkey patties. Grill patties until meat is fully cooked.

Once patties are cooked, move them to a plate and heat 1 T in pan. Lightly toast slices of bread until golden brown and then flip to other side.

When bread is toasted, create a sandwich with turkey patty, grilled onions and a slice of cheese.

Messy, but very good! Enjoy!


  1. That looks great! My boyfriend and I have been trying to cut out red meat and we are HUGE patty melt lovers!I will be trying this SOON!

  2. Ohh we're going to have to give this a try! We use a lot of ground turkey in place of ground beef just because it's healthier, so it's always nice to have a new recipe.

  3. Ohmygosh I haven't had a patty melt in YEARS! This looks sooooo good! <3
