Gluten Free Patty Melt Panini Style

I was battling the what should I make for dinner question until the last minute when I decided it was a burger kinda night. And then proclaimed it was even better — a patty melt kinda night! I love grilled onions… So having an excuse to sauté some up is heaven.

5 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 onion, sliced into 1/4″ rings
  • 5 (1/4 lb) ground beef patties
  • 10 slices gluten free bread (I used Udi’s)
  • 10 slices swiss cheese
  • 5 tablespoons thousand island dressing
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat panini grill to medium-high heat (375°F).

Add olive oil and 1/2 Tbsp of Butter into a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add onions and sauté until browned, about 8 minutes.

Remove onions from pan and set aside. In same pan, fry the hamburger patties for 3 to 4 minutes until very browned on one side. Flip and continue cooking the other side for another 3 minutes. Remove from pan.
Assemble the patty melts:

Butter one side of your bread. On other side top bread with a slice of cheese, onions, the burger patty, thousand island and a final piece of bread.

Grill your sandwich until golden and the cheese melts, about 2-3 minutes. Repeat for each burger.
