I Melt With You

34 posts in this topic

Now I'm starving! I love a good patty melt, but is it a travesty that I like mine with American cheese? No other cheese gets as gooey and melty and all down in the crevasses of onion like American.

Not travesty (but) having tried all many cheeses Swiss is teh besto IMHO.

--edit: Especially tasty @ 2 in the morning 3 really (happy daylight savings time)

While I'll agree about American's melting properties, I don't think it has enough flavor to stand up to the other ingredients. However, there are worse things.

Dare I mention grilled , um I mean griddled cheese sandwiches with French's on the inside and honey spread on the outside? 

Honey on the outside??? Please to splain.

Stay tuned for that story.

Great story, Jaz. But speaking of patty melts, which I love by the way, I can't resist adding this:

I applaud your sense of what's right! I have always thought the Patty Melt was the highest creation that could come from hamburger and a grill. For me it has the right amount of the right tastes to perfectly compliment a hamburger patty, and has always been one of my favorites.

And I completely embrace your history of it's creation. Although we did have Tiny Naylor's restaurants where I grew up. hmmm....

Just thought it was worth mentioning that for a recent cocktail party class I taught, I introduced the concept of the appetizer patty melt, made on cocktail rye bread -- cut in half, it made the perfect two-bite snack.

I read this Article this morning and made Patty Melts for dinner after a quick trip to the store for some Rye Bread.

Please don't ever write about me sending you all my money.
