Grilled Cheese Patty Melts


A comforting grilled cheese sandwich and a delicious cheeseburger are combined in this juicy, satisfying patty melt, resulting in a mouthwatering meal. My family likes it best with Colby-Jack cheese and white bread, but you can easily substitute your favorite cheese/bread combo.

Prep Time:

Cook Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
25 mins


  • 1 pound 85% lean ground beef

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon Montreal-style steak seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened, or as needed

  • 6 slices white bread

  • 6 slices Colby-Jack cheese


  1. Combine ground beef, parsley, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and steak seasoning in a bowl; mix until thoroughly combined. Form into three equal patties.

  2. Heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat. Place burgers onto the warm griddle and cook to desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (71 degrees C). Remove burgers and set aside.

  3. Warm a second griddle over medium heat. Butter one side of each bread slice. Place 1/2 of the bread onto the griddle, buttered-side down. Add a slice of cheese, a burger, and a second slice of cheese to each one, then top with the remaining bread, buttered-side up.

  4. Cook until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, 6 to 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
