Diner Style At Home
James wanted burgers for dinner. I get bored making the same thing over and over again so I try to, at least occasionally, put a slightly different spin on his favorite dinners. And so, in not too far a stretch, burgers became patty melts. I cooked up beef patties and layered them on rosemary bread along with swiss cheese, grilled onions, arugula, mustard, pickles and bacon and popped them back in the same skillet to toast in the fat left from cooking the burgers -- and a little added butter. I used a heavy lid to press them down, flipped and dinner was server golden brown. Big hit. James went back for thirds.
