  • Author: Sweetpea


Chipotle Patty Melts are the diner classic comfort food you’re craving!
Melty, cheesy, smokey, slightly spicy sandwich is perfect for dinner with the family anytime!


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon A1 Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Chipotle Hot Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon bacon grease or oil
  • 4 ounces monterey jack cheese, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon Chipotle Hot Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Duke’s mayonnaise
  • Hawaiian Bread Loaf – sliced


  1. In a large mixing bowl, gently combine ground beef, A1 sauce, chipotle hot sauce, and worcestershire sauce.
  2. In a small bowl, combine chipotle hot sauce and mayo to create the chipotle mayo.
  3. Form into rectangle shaped patties and set aside.
  4. Over a cast iron skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of bacon grease or oil, and saute onions in a single layer until they begin to brown.
  5. Once the onions begin to brown, create onion piles where the patties will be pressed into them on the griddle/skillet.
  6. Place patties on top of onion piles, and smoosh down a bit. Allow to cook until a good crust forms, where you can see the sides browning.
  7. Turn oven to broil.
  8. Flip each patty, with the onions attached, and allow to cook through to preference on the other side.
  9. Line a sheet tray with aluminum foil and place cooked patties on the pan.
  10. Top with cheese, and broil until golden brown. Depending on your oven, 2-3 minutes.
  11. Clean off skillet with a paper towel – be careful, it will still be hot!
  12. Butter one side of the bread, and place butter side down in the skillet. 
  13. Spoon on chipotle mayo, and a patty with melted cheese.
  14. Spoon some chipotle mayo on the other slice of bread, and top the sandwich.
  15. Spread butter on the “up” side of the bread before flipping to toast the other side.
  16. Serve immediately!
