Grilled Cheese with Balsamic Onion Marmalade

Gooey Goodness.  I love a grilled cheese sandwich.  I love a patty melt and always thought that a patty melt would be just as yummy without the patty and I was right.

Early in the day I made a loaf of plain old white bread.  I mean plain.  Water, yeast, flour and salt.  No sweetener.  This makes a great grilled cheese sandwich, nice and crisp.

Balsamic Onion Marmalade

  • 1 T. olive oil

  • 4 medium onions, thinly sliced

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
Thinly slice onions. Saute onions in frying pan with oil, salt and pepper on medium heat for 20 minutes, until onions are soft.  Add the sugar and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, until the onions appear dry. Add the vinegar and reduce the heat to low. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour, until the onions are soft and dry. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store the marmalade in the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks

To make your sandwich you will need to gather the following:

  • Bread:  I think this sandwich is great on white, but am sure it would be great on sourdough or rye as well.

  • Cheese:  I used jack cheese because this is what I had on hand. 

  • Butter
To assemble your sandwich spread one side of bread with butter and put on griddle. Place a slice of cheese, desired amount of onions and another slice of cheese on bread. Top with another slice of buttered bread.  Grill until crisp on the outside and cheese is melted.  Delicious.
