Method

Caramelized Onions 4 Steps

  • Step 1

    In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter and add oil. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until starting to soften.

  • Step 2

    Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring often, until deep golden and a jam like consistency, 45 to 50 minutes.

  • Step 3

    When onions are nice and caramelized season with salt to taste.

  • Step 4

    You can use immediately or reserve until you are ready to make your grilled cheese.

Grilled Cheese 6 Steps

  • Step 1

    Spread 1 tablespoon of butter on one side of each slice of bread.

  • Step 2

    Add your buttered bread to a skillet, butter side down and top each slice with cheddar cheese. I like to use the best quality cheddar I can find for grilled cheese recipes.

  • Step 3

    Add about 1/4-1/2 cup of caramelized onions on top of cheese.

  • Step 4

    Keep heat on low to medium so the bread can slowly get nice and golden while the cheese starts to melt. After about 2 minutes, flip one piece of bread on top of the other and continue to cook until cheese is melty. You may have to flip a few times but do this carefully.

  • Step 5

    Repeat for the second sandwich, wiping skillet clean if necessary to remove melted cheese and caramelized onions that may have fallen off before adding second slice.

  • Step 6

    If you are having trouble melting the cheese, turn heat very, very low and cover your skillet with a lid and let the steam melt the cheese. Remove the lid and fry until crispy and take your grilled cheese out.
