Minced steak patties flavoured with some seasonings and a portion of the Jack Daniel's Original Smooth BBQ sauce are grilled and then placed into toasted sour dough bread along with sliced streaky bacon which has been glazed with Jack Daniel's Smoky Sweet BBQ Glaze, slices of Swiss Gruyere cheese and caramelised onions for a sandwich which packs a really delicious whammy of fabulous flavours!

As I said the burger Patty's themselves are flavoured with the original smooth and the bacon is glazed with the smoky  sweet glaze.  I was sent some of their line of sauces and glazes to try out.  I jumped at the opportunity as I just love the Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce products and actually have used them many times in the past.  They are fabulously tasty sauces and glazes.  I could eat them with a spoon!

Lets get real here  . . .  who doesn't love a patty melt!  Not I!  I adore them, and I am slowly bringing Todd around to my way of thinking.  The only difference between us now is I eat mine by hand and he uses a knife and a fork!

I'll be up front here and tell you I didn't cook four of these, only one, which was plenty large enough for the pair of us to enjoy. I used a lovely Polish rye sourdough that I had picked up at the shops. Oh boy, was it ever good!  Look at that cheese melting onto the grill pan and those caramelised onions.  Wowsa good!

As you can see it makes for a lovely and hefty sandwich, which is not only a mouthful but a delicious handful as well!

I like to keep the meat patties fairly thinnish.  Bear in mind that they will shrink when you are cooking them a bit, so pat them out larger than you want them to be so that they fill the bread well.  I put some of the BBQ sauce in the meat mixture and I glazed the patty with some of the glaze while I was cooking it so that I could really get that lovely Jack Daniel's BBQ flavor into every bite!

Mmmm . . .  the bacon was also glazed with some of the Jack Daniel's glaze for a really delicious sweet and salty finish!

Just look at all those delicious layers . . . toasted bread, caramelised onions  . . .  melted cheese  . . .  crisp sticky sweet bacon . . .  all melded together with that lovely minced steak patty.  Now that's what I call a Patty Melt to die for!!! I think the dad in your life will more than agree!

Easy and delicious. The dad in your life will love LOVE this!  
6 TBS softened butter1 large onion, peeled, halved and cut into thin half moons1 1/2 lb. minced steak65g Jack Daniels Original Smooth BBQ Sauce1/2 tsp each garlic and onion powders (not salt)salt and black pepper to taste12 slices of streaky baconJack Daniels Smoky Sweet BBQ Glaze8 large slices of Gruyere Swiss style cheese8 slices of sour dough bread 
Jack Daniel's Patty Melt 
Melt 2 TBS of the butter in a skillet.  Add the onions. Cook slowly over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until caramelised and golden brown. Keep warm.
Preheat the oven to 220*C/425*F/ gas mark 7. Line a baking tray with some aluminum foil. Place a baking rack on top of the baking sheet.  Lay the slices of bacon on top of the rack.  Bake in the oven for about 8 minutes.  Brush lightly with the BBQ Glaze, flip over, brush the bottom side with the glaze and return to the oven and roast for a further 8 to 10 minutes or until as crisp as you want your bacon to be.  Remove and keep warm.
Mix the ground steak with the BBQ sauce, garlic and onion powders, and salt and black pepper to taste.  Divide into 4 and shape each into a large oval flat patty, roughly the size of your slices of bread.  Jack Daniel's Patty Melt
Melt 2 TBS of butter in a large skillet.  Add the beef patties and grill over medium heat until done and no longer pink in the middle, about 4 minutes per side.  Brush with some of the BBQ Glaze half way through the cooking, if desired. Remove and keep warm.
Heat a large griddle pan over medium heat.  Butter all of your slices of bread lightly on one side. Place four slices, buttered side down on the griddle.  Top each with a slice of cheese, 1/4 of the onions, 3 slices of the cooked bacon, and one burger patty.  Place another slice of cheese on top of the burger patty and the final four slices of bread, butter side up. Grill the sandwiches until golden brown on the bottom, carefully flip over and grill until golden brown on the other side.  The cheese should be melted and the bread crisp.  Cut in half and serve!  Jack Daniel's Patty Melt 
Now that was one mightily delicious mouthful!!!  Bon weekend and Bon Appetit!
