This patty melt recipe isn’t only a crowd pleaser, it’ll be your go-to for busy weeknights, hungry kids, or a special treat that you whip up in a jif. Though this dish originated in Southern California in the 1940s, it’s certainly earned its place as a classic with many iterations of the patty melt being served all over the country. This Impossible™ Burger take on patty melt truly turns things up a notch with cheese that’s super melty, crispy dill pickle chips, and cola-carmelized onions—made with meat from plants so it's healthier and also better for the planet. Saving the planet with delicious meals!

One of the key flavors in this dish is the cola-caramelized onions. Yes, that's right, you get to cook with cola today; don’t shy away from this combination! Here's how it works—the sugar in the cola works not only to add a light sweetness to the onions, but the sugars also work to break down the onion itself, creating a soft texture and morphing the flavor from raw and sharp to soft and sweet. The combination of sweet, caramelized onions, cheese, rye bread, salty dill pickle chips and Impossible Burger hits all the notes for a perfect umami flavor.

This dish is filling, nutritious and cooks up in a flash. Put it in rotation to switch things up from a classic burger recipe and get creative with some fun sides to add your own personal flare!
