Oh man. I am learning with any type of home fixing up, stress levels are high and homemade meals are really non-existent. Though, I did get one cooked night in and I decided to go with Patty Melts...

Patty Melts are something I remember my mom making for us often when we were kids and I wanted something kind of nostalgic to make for my girls during this busy time. I am definitely a fan of these types of sandwiches and I loved it paired with some carrot fries. Yum. Yum.

Here's how to make my type of Patty Melts...
- rye read
- 1 onion diced
- 1 lb. lean ground turkey
- Kraft Singles American Cheese
-unsalted butter

Dice the onions and with a fork mix it into the lean ground turkey. Form oval shape patties and season both sides of the patty with salt and pepper. Cook patties on a skillet until cooked all the way through. 

Meanwhile, butter the outside parts of the bread. On one slice of bread, top with 2 slices of cheese, a patty, and another slice of bread on top. I had a panini maker handy, so I just used that to finish the sandwich off. This made about 6 servings for us, but will differ a bit depending how much meat you put in your patties.

The rye bread gives the nice little kick and mixed in with a slice (or 2 because I like things cheesy) of Kraft Singles... I love it! So do my girls, which is most important. I miss my mom making these for me, but I am glad I can make them for my girls now. Hopefully next week things will calm down a bit and our kitchen can begin operation again and I can be cooking more than once a week. I really miss my kitchen!

Week of 5/28 - 6/1
Monday: Burgers (it's memorial day over here!)
Tuesday: Pizza
Wednesday: Dumplings
Thursday: Spaghetti & Meatballs

I'm crossing my fingers that I will be back in my kitchen next week.

  1. Rubyellen, that looks delicious! I do have one question for ya though, how did you make the carrot fries? I have never thought to do that but they look and sound delish... I'll be praying for your home construction to wrap up smoothly.

    1. I have the same question! Would love to know how you made those!

    2. Yes! How do you make the carrot fries? Those sound awesome!! :)
