Can’t decide between French Onion Soup or Grilled Cheese? Try this yummy French Onion Grilled Cheese that will satisfy your craving for both.
I can’t even begin to describe how delicious this is.
If you are a lover of French Onion Soup, or just love soft and sweet caramelized onion, you have to try this incredible grilled cheese.
I love creating fun and tasty sandwiches and burgers. They are on my dinner menu a few nights a week. From BLT’s, to a classic Grilled Cheese sandwich paired with my quick and easy homemade Creamy Tomato Soup, you can’t beat a soup and sandwich dinner night. To save a step, you can cook the onions ahead time and have the ready to go in your refrigerator.
Not only is this grilled cheese great for a dinner, but I love the idea of making them for parties. You can cut them in half and serve on a platter or even cut them smaller for mini sandwiches. Great for your game day buffet along with a pot of chili.
What I love about this French Onion Grilled Cheese is the kickin’ sauce I created that combines worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise, garlic powder, parsley and thyme. Combined with the creamy cheese and a few slices of sourdough bread, this sauce adds the finishing touch to this tasty grilled cheese sandwich.
What you need
Deli swiss or provolone cheese
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sliced onion, season with salt and cook, stirring occasionally for about 18-20 minutes until tender and golden brown. Stir in balsamic vinegar and cook for 1-2 minutes longer.
Butter outside of bread. In a small bowl mix mayonnaise, worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, parsley and thyme. Spread on both slices of bread. Top with cheese and onions. Top with remaining slice of bread. Toast each side of bread in a large skillet until cheese is melted. I like to use the same skillet that the onions were cooked in to infuse the flavor from the pan into the bread.
