Standard patty melts—burger–grilled cheese hybrids, with caramelized onions and Swiss-style cheese on rye—are one of the glories of the American diner. With this recipe we respect tradition but lighten up a bit, subbing a moist, flavorful dark-meat turkey burger for the beef. Feel free to gild the lily by adding Thousand Island or Russian dressing to the bread before cooking. An accompanying pile of crispy french fries will take things all the way to the diner.
