Veggie Patty Melt

Today my husband set out to conquer the masterful and most loved American patty melt sandwich. 

We had one just the other day at a vegetarian restaurant, and almost thought it was beyond our thoughts to construe. 

Needless to say, nothing in cooking is impossible...it just takes a little thinking (well, a lot of it sometimes).

This sandwich is so tender, juicy, tasty, and flavorful that you may be tempted to eat one again and again. 

Be temperate!

I cannot even really describe how much this has become my favorite sandwich. I will probably dream of it, it tastes so delicious. 

Ingredients:
2-3 tbsp of Earth Balance buttery spread
1 Sol Cuisine veggie burger 
1/4 cup white onions cut in strips
½ cup of shredded Daiya cheese
lettuce (optional)
2 slices of gluten free bread
Oven baked home fries for a side (optional)

Directions:

In a pan, melt 1 tablespoon of Earth Balance over medium heat.

Place Sol Cuisine burger and chopped onions in the pan, and let them cook until the burger is slightly crispy on the outside and onions are caramelized, flipping burger over with the spatula intermittently. 

This is a 10-15 minute process.

Remove onions and burger from pan when done, and place on a plate and set aside.

Next, a
dd 1 tablespoon of Earth Balance buttery spread to pan again, and after it has melted place your two slices of gluten free bread to the frying pan.

Toast the bread until it is golden brown.


Flip for equal consistency.

Place your vegan shredded cheeses (both cheddar and mozzarella flavored) on the slices of bread so that it can melt. Use as much cheese as you love! Use less if you are calorie counting.

Place your top on your frying pan for about 3 minutes.

Place the burger and then the onions on top of one slice of the bread and cheese.

Right after you have stacked the sandwich, place some optional homemade vegan thousand island dressing on the top, and then add the other slice bread on top of the entire sandwich... flip it in the pan, and cover the pan for about a minute or so until the cheese is fully melted and the toast is golden colored.

Remove patty melt from pan, and place a piece of fresh romaine lettuce in it (optional).

I would be excited if my wife made me one of these! I love patty melts and this one looks amazing! The last time I had a patty melt was 2011 before I held a meeting in Hanford CA. Just wow!
