One of the things that I remember my mother making as a child was what we call a patty melt today. I made them for lunch today and thought I would share the memory.
First, two slices of bread per sandwich were buttered on one side.
These were placed on one slice of bread and topped with a slice of cheese (since my husband loves pepper jack cheese, his looks a little different).
I placed both in a skillet - buttered side out. My mother had an electric sandwich griddle that she placed them in, then shut the lid and let them brown. The cheese would melt down through the meat - yum yum!
Since I have no such appliance, I improvised with my bacon press to press them down and let the cheese melt through.
The finished product did not taste like my mother's, but they were good. I think she must have used processed cheese spread because I remember them being "cheesier". I might try a piece of cheese on each side next time.
