French Onion Grilled Cheese


 
 

French Onion Grilled Cheese

Ingredients:
3 T. butter
2 yellow onions
1 red onion
1 T. fresh thyme
1/2 cup red wine
a/n olive oil
8 slices of sourdough bread
8 slices of Swiss cheese

Directions:
  • In a large skillet, heat butter. Add onion and sauté for about 5-10 minutes. Turn down the heat and continue cooking for an additional 20-30 minutes. The moisture in the onions will begin to sweat out, and start to caramelize. Add thyme and the red wine. Continue cooking until the red wine has reduced. Remove from pan, wipe pan clean, and use again.
  • Heat butter in skillet over medium heat and add a slice of bread. Add a layer of Swiss cheese, caramelized onions, and another piece of cheese and bread.
  • Cook until the bread is toasted and brown. Remove sandwich from pan with spatula. Add more butter. And flip onto the other side. Toast. Slice and serve. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serves four.
