French Onion Grilled Cheese

French Onion Grilled Cheese

A grilled cheese that is reminiscent of French Onion soup.













Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


4 slices whole wheat bread
¼ cup Red Onion Jam
1 x black pepper
to taste
1 cup gruyere cheese
shredded or sliced
1 tablespoon butter


Toast the bread until just starting to color, do not over toast.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Spread two slices with equal amounts of the red onion jam (that you made in advance), sprinkle with a few grinding of fresh black pepper and top with the slices of Gruyere cheese. Top with the remaining slices of bread to form a sandwich.

Spread the butter on the outside of the sandwiches.

Place the sandwiches in the pan and grill for about 4 minutes, pressing down occasionally, until crispy and golden.

Flip and grill for another 4 minutes, or until crispy and golden.

Hmm, nothing is better than a grilled cheese. Sean made this French Onion Grilled Cheese for my lunch today, and it was so yummy. Nice brown and crispy whole-grain bread with cheesy, oozy cheese and extra yumminess from the caramelized red onion jam, heavenly delicious. Love grilled cheese? Love caramelized onion jam? You certainly shouldn't miss this French Onion Grilled Cheese.

I made this for brunch today. I have to say, this is going to be my new favorite. I'd never had such a delicious grilled cheese before in my life. I'm a very big fan of it.
