French Patty Melts

with Caramelized Onions & Dijonnaise

The comforting, classic patty melt is a simple hamburger patty, melted cheese, and tender onions, sandwiched between toasted bread. For an elevated plant-based version, use green veggie burger patties and caramelize onions until sweet and golden brown. Then, slather toasted bread with a creamy, mustardy mayonnaise before assembling the sandwiches. Crispy fries, tossed in a French mustard and herb blend, are the perfect dipper to sop up any extra Dijon mayo.

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Roast the fries

Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine potato wedges, 2 tsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper on baking sheet and toss. Roast for 15 minutes. Add garlic and French mustard and herb blend, toss to coat, and continue to roast until potatoes are browned and crispy, 5 to 10 minutes. (4-serving meal: use 4 tsp olive oil)

2
Cook the burgers and caramelize the onions

Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and a pinch of salt and pepper to one side of skillet. To other side, add burgers. Cook onions, stirring occasionally, until soft and starting to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Cook burgers until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer burgers and onions to plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Set skillet aside for step 4. (4-serving meal: use ¼ cup olive oil) (TIP: For the 4-serving meal, cook onions in one batch and burgers in second batch.)

3
Make the Dijonnaise and build the patty melts

Stir together mustard and mayo in small bowl. Spread Dijonnaise evenly on all slices of sourdough. Place burgers on bottom slices of sourdough and top with onions. Top with remaining sourdough.

4
Cook and serve

Heat 2 tsp olive oil in same skillet over medium heat. Add patty melts and cook until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Cut French patty melts with caramelized onions and Dijonnaise in half. Serve with fries and extra Dijonnaise. Enjoy! (TIP: For the 4-serving meal, work in batches, adding more oil as needed.)
