After seeing Dyal's patty melts last week, I knew I was going to have to make some up for myself. Thanks, Dyal for the idea.

Started by grinding up 3 lbs of chuck. Wasn't happy with the fat content, so I ground up 5 slices of bacon with it.

Mrs. G decided to press some onions into her patties.

Plated up with some tater tots

The patty melts came out really good. I think the addition of the bacon kept them from drying out, but didn't really add any flavor at least not that I could taste. Although with the toast, the cheese, condiments and extra bacon, I'm not sure I would have tasted it anyway.

No one should ever have to suffer with too-lean ground beef! :lol:

The burger and the patty melt both look great!

I bet the bacon mixed with the meat gave it a great flavor.
