Pimiento-Cheese Patty Melt for Two

Pimiento-Cheese Patty Melt for Two

1 Review
From the EatingWell Kitchen

A healthy pimiento-cheese spread makes an insanely delicious topping for this easy patty melt recipe. To keep the bread-to-burger ratio even (and calories in check), look for a smaller loaf of country bread or cut a large piece in half and use one slice for two servings.

  1. Combine onion, Worcestershire, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add beef and gently knead together. Do not overmix. Form into 2 burgers, about the same size as the bread you're using.
  2. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes total.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat broiler to high. Combine cheese, mayonnaise, pimientos and scallions in a small bowl. Toast bread.
  4. Place toast on a baking sheet. Top each piece with a burger and half the cheese mixture. Broil until the cheese starts to brown, about 2 minutes.

This is a great recipe, instead of cooking all the way through in the skillet, I sear them and then put in oven to finish cooking. Love the topping.
