I don’t know about you, but when I make a roast, I almost always have leftovers. Well, these Leftover Pot Roast Patty Melts are the best thing to happen to leftover roast since….EVER!
In fact, I purposely cook extra roast now, just to make sure I have enough leftovers to make these sandwiches the next day.
My husband said this was even better than the pot roast! ~ Lisa
With a creamy mayo-steak sauce spread, grilled onions, and two kinds of cheese, these sandwiches are the best variation on a patty melt I’ve ever tried.
The grilled onions are the star of these sandwiches, as far as I’m concerned. Sure, it takes a little bit of time and attention to get them caramelized just right. But it’s SO worth it!
These hearty, satisfying meal was also huge hit with my husband and hungry teenage boys!
These were absolutely delicious! Is it bad that I woke up thinking about maybe having another one tonight? ~ Natalie

Nothing beats a Patty Melt–well except for a pot roast patty melt–this looks great!
My husband would love these (probably more than the pot roast dinner). They look delicious!
I love using leftovers!
Lori Who Needs A Cape?
I’m in love with these! Seriously making them next time I have leftover pot roast!
patty melts are my favorite to get at diners. yum!
Pressure cookers have been around for eons and thankfully the newer versions are safer, easier and faster!! They are great for any food group but meats are the best~imagine having a big roast or whole chicken ready in a little over an hour!!

Very tasty! Will make again.
This recipe was a hit! It seriously tasted like something I’d order in a higher-end pub-style restaurant. I accidentally crisped the onions up a bit in the frying pan but they ended up adding a nice hint of crunch. I could put that sauce on a flip flop and eat it happily. I’d never thought to mix mayo and bbq sauce together! If I do anything different next time, it’ll be to get a bigger loaf of bread lol. So good I’m making it again for lunch tomorrow!
What is a good bread?
I have the same question. What is “sturdy” bread?
Like a crusty sourdough type bread. Not just regular sandwich bread.
These were perfect! We used a sturdy bread, but could only eat half a sandwich each. Means I have lunch for next week! Thanks for such a creative and delicious recipe. Easy too!
