Foodie Friday: Venison Patty Melt Goodness

The patty melt is an outstanding alternative to the usual venison bacon cheeseburgers, though you could add whatever extras you want to it. The rye or sourdough bread and onions make them a solid choice for venison anytime. (Photo courtesy gettyimages.com)

Directions

Sauté onions (make the slices ultra-thin) in 2 tablespoons of butter until translucent and lightly golden (caramelized). Remove the onions from the pan.

Form the meat patty so it will fit the bread. Some people like rye, others sourdough. Use your imagination. Cook the patty to desired doneness.

TIPS FOR GRILLING THE PERFECT VENISON

Butter the bread on one side; put buttered side down on hot griddle, put one thick slice of cheese followed by onions then cooked patty, followed by another slice of cheese. Butter one side of the other slice of bread and place on top with buttered side out.

Fry until the bread is crisp but not burned, turn over and do the same on the other side. Cheese should be well melted. 

Make a few patty melts and share all that venison goodness with your family and friends. Enjoy!
