These are so easy and affordable to make, I often make them on busy weekday mornings when I have a few extra minutes. My kids can grab them and take them on the go and I’m so happy knowing that they are getting a good breakfast to start out their day. You can prepare the patties ahead of time and then fry them up when you’re ready to eat. They are done in less than 30 minutes! Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at The Pioneer Woman:
“Suddenly my scrambled eggs & toast seems so boring… maybe i’ll adapt this recipe into a Lunch Patty Melt.”
This sandwich is scrumptious no matter what time of the day you have it. Don’t be afraid to share with someone, because it’s huge!
- 4 Tablespoons Land O’ Lakes Butter, More If Needed
- 1/2 whole Medium Yellow Onion, Sliced
- 1/4 pound Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage
- 2 whole Eggs, Beaten
- 3 slices Sargento Cheddar, Swiss, Provolone, Or Other Cheese
- 2 slices Bread (sourdough, Rye, Whole Wheat, Etc.)
- Heat a non-stick skillet over low heat and melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, until onions are soft and slightly caramelized. Remove them to a plate and set them aside.
- Form the sausage into a thin patty about the width of the bread you’re using. Add it to the same skillet and increase the heat to medium. Cook the patty on both sides until fully cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate and set aside. Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel.
- Pour in the beaten eggs and cook, forming them into a rough circle as they set up. Flip to finish cooking on the other side.
- Assemble the patty melt: bread, cheese, patty, eggs, cheese, onions, cheese, bread. Melt the remaining butter in a clean skillet over low heat. Place the sandwich in the skillet and cook low and slow for a good 8 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is deliciously crisp. Add more butter to the skillet if the bread needs it (you don’t want the bread to be dry!)
- Slice in half and serve.
