Love a good Burger? Who doesn’t? I think even Vegans secretly crave a good patty of charred beef.
A diner staple is the Patty Melt, at it’s core its a burger on toast. But it’s more than that its also a burger cooked on a grill.
I was at a diner once and they had on their menu a “barnyard burger”. It was grilled chicken, quarter pound of Beef and Bbq Pork. Being the daring young man I am I decided to try it out.
I know here in the southwest we pride ourselves on eating a lot of meat. But for me…. It was just too much.
I decided to make the Perfect Barnyard Melt:
You need some fresh beef. And also because it’s going on toast I suggest making square patties out of a quarter of a pound.
I use two slices crispy.
I like to keep mine on the over medium end so the yolk is still a bit runny.
Colby Jack Cheese:
I go back and forth on what cheese is better, pepper jack or Colby jack. Colby Jack won out this time!
You’ll want to lightly toast these on the griddle with some butter. You could use a toaster but it might be a bit bland.
And there you have it! The Perfect Barnyard Melt! Happy Dining!
