Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese
Turn this simple, comfort food, into an elevated, and delicious meal.
Yields: 4 Sandwiches
2 yellow onions, sliced
2 tablespoons butter
2 pinches Black Garlic Salt*
8 slices brioche bread, buttered
16 slices Cheddar cheese
Take a medium sized pan with a lid, on a medium heat, add butter. Once butter has melted, add the sliced onions, stirring to coat with butter. Cover with a lid. Let onions steam for about 5-8 minutes with lid on, stirring occasionally. Once onions are translucent remove the lid and add Black Garlic Salt. Keep cooking onions on medium-low heat until caramelized to desired color. If the onions get a bit burnt it's OK to add a splash of water to stop the burning - make sure to stir often.
Remove the onions from the heat and begin assembling the grilled cheese. Using a cast iron pan over medium low heat add slices of bread, buttered side down, followed by two slices of cheddar cheese. Over the cheese spread an even layer of caramelized onions, and finish building the grilled cheese by topping with the next slice of bread, buttered side up. Let brown on each side, about 3-5 minutes, until golden brown and delicious.
