Soy sauce is commonly added to hot dogs, hamburgers, and other foods that are usually served with ketchup or mustard. Soy sauce also makes a great basting for pork chops or chicken breasts as they cook on the grill or in the oven.

You can add soy sauce directly to the pan when you’re making your patty melt waffle house. It will help you create a crispy outside on your sandwich without using any other kind of oil or fat!

How to make a waffle house patty melt

  1. Add butter to a medium-heat skillet and allow it to melt.
  2. Add one teaspoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and sliced onions and let it cook for 20mins
  3. Lower the heat and frequently stir to avoid burning and stickiness.
  4. Now for the ground beef, add a pack of Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and black pepper.

  7. Once cooked, you can now toast the bread.
  8. On one side of sliced bread, coat with a bit of butter (this will be the outer side of the sandwich.
  9. Add the grated cheese, carmelized onions and patties on top and cover with another slice of bread.
  10. In a skillet, heat up a small amount of butter and place the sandwich in it (make sure the side with the butter is below.)

What to serve with?

The Patty Melt is the ultimate sandwich for a snack-loving crowd. Serve it up with any of our favorite sides to make a complete meal.

Try pairing the Waffle House Patty Melt with:

  • Coleslaw: This classic side dish is great on its own, but when paired with the Patty Melt, you get a true taste of southern comfort!
  • Waffle fries: These crispy fries are delicious to eat on their own, but they’re also perfect with this sandwich! Top them off with your favorite sauce or dip to enjoy a more intense flavor.
  • Baked beans: For something more savoury, try serving baked beans on the side with your Patty Melt. You can even add some bacon if you want it extra messy!

Cooking Tips

  • Use a spatula to spread the cheese on top of the burger patty. This will help the cheese melt and stick to the patty better.
  • Make sure to cook the patty until it is cooked through, but don’t overcook it! If it’s too well done, then the cheese will be too crispy and hard.**Tip: If you want your cheese a little softer, then cook it for less time than normal**
  • After you have cooked your burger patty, place it in a skillet over medium heat with a little bit of olive oil and let it cook until it is golden brown on both sides**Tip: This will help keep your burger from getting soggy from sitting in melted cheese or sauce*, *Once your burger is ready, add some salt and pepper to taste*, *Top off with your favorite toppings! We like lettuce, tomato, pickles and onions!

Storage

If you want to store your Waffle House Patty Melt, here’s how:

  1. Let it cool down completely before you wrap it up.
  2. Wrap it in foil or plastic wrap and place it in the freezer for up to 24 hours.
  3. When you’re ready to eat, unwrap it and let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.

Reheating

You can reheat Waffle House Patty Melt in the microwave, or you can use a grill pan and cook it over medium heat.

  • To reheat in the microwave, just heat up the patty melt on a plate in the microwave for about one minute at a time until it’s heated through.
