Burger or sandwich? Lemme' know what you think. The Patty Melt is said to have originated in the 1940s or 1950s in Southern California in the restaurant chain of William “Tiny” Naylor. in the 1940s. The traditional recipe has a ground beef patty topped with either American, Swiss or cheddar cheese and grilled onions on rye bread, pan fried in butter.
Cassell's elevated the melt (slightly) by allowing the cheese to hang over the side of the bread and making available a variety of sauces.
