The secret to the fatty melt is to start with two very thin grilled cheese sandwiches to start and only to add the patty when it has cooled down a bit and is not greasy.

Try plain white bread, like webers, and one slice of american, swiss, or pepperjack. If you're grilling it in a pan put a sheet of foil on top of the sandwich and press down using another pan or a heavy pot. repeat on the opposite side of the sandwich.

From here, I don't add much, a little mustard and a thinly shaped, slightly cooled, and not greasy hamburger patty, press down again...eat. eat. eat.

I have also seen the "club" idea before. Not to be taken lightly. This thing is BUSINESS. For that guy, there are three grilled cheese sandwiches as buns and each sandwich has two slices of bacon grilled right in with the cheese.Between each sandwich is a big ol patty. Hardcore....I'd eat it. If noone was looking...judging me...

The website "this is why you're fat" .com also has many variations for you to study. Again, please let us know if you try again!...pictures?

This sounded interesting, so I gave it a shot. I made the grilled cheese in my panini press out of commercial Texas toast. I know from experience that it will turn out thin-as-a-pancake.

Looks Great! That must have been a lot of pressing. I have never seen such skinny Texas toast in my life.

My goodness, this thread made me laugh my a%# off.

"I think that is called a Fatty Melt"

"I'm not daunted. I'm a single guy with no weekend plans and 5 pounds of hamburger meat. So I'm thinking of improvements."

"I'm totally open to suggestions for making this better...Add some bacon."

Ahh...The delights of DC.

I like to save time in the morning by making French Toast in my panini press, and I learned not to try it with Texas toast. While it is thick to start with, it is also very soft. I think if you left it out on the counter over night, it would collapse under its own weight.

Right? If I tried having this conversations with people I know in RL they'd either be disgusted or laugh and walk away.

the add bacon part is my favorite too.

Sorry about that...seems like I overlooked the obvious.

It was really good. The mayo kept the bread from getting soggy. That's a trick I just picked up recently that I'll have to remember. I should have used more cheese (but isn't that always the case ). I cooked the grilled cheese at too low of a temperature; by the time the bread was done, the cheese was melting out the sides.
