Was watching Diners, Drive-ins and Dives the other day and Guy was eating a patty melt. Pre-op I used to love those... crusty rye bread, juicy burger, gooey cheese. So last night for dinner I made my weight loss surgery friendly version. These are soooo good. Total patty melt but less carbs and more protein. Yum!
