Granny Smith Grilled Cheese With Caramelized Onions Recipe
Summertime cooking can be tricky if you’re looking to avoid using the oven or stove.
I find that using a portable indoor grill works really well in these situations. That way, you can still make hot food without heating up the whole kitchen.
This sandwich I made the other day was really tasty.
The tart apples, sweet onions, and creamy cheese were perfect sandwich companions.
I know that caramelizing onions is a long process, but know that it’s worth it to make a truly scrumptious sandwich.
Pro tip: As long as you’re making caramelized onions, make a big batch and freeze for future use.
No Panini Press? No Problem.
A panini press isn’t necessary to make a grilled sandwich like this one. I simply used my George Foreman Grill to make a perfectly toasted sandwich.
Just prop the lower edge up on a cutting board so none of the ingredients slide off. If you don’t have a George Foreman Grill, you can find one at pretty much any garage sale or thrift shop. I see them all the time!
Not Sure How To Caramelize Onions?
Instructions can be found in my French onion soup recipe post.
For each sandwich
- 2 slices multigrain bread
- Brie cheese slices
- Granny Smith apple slices
- Caramelized onions
- To assemble sandwiches, spread brie cheese on bread, top with apple slices, lay on a few caramelized onion slices, and top with another slice of bread. Butter the exposed sides of the bread.
- Place on preheated grill and heat for a few minutes, until cheese is melted and bread is toasted. On my George Foreman Grill, this took about four minutes.
