caramelized onion, pesto and buffalo mozarella grilled cheese


Who doesn’t love grilled cheese sandwiches? If you don’t understand the beauty of the grilled cheese sandwich, stop reading… This post most definitely isn’t for you.

This recipe is the result of finding some sweet onions and some fresh pesto in my fridge and not really wanting to make a complicated dinner.  I didn’t even make it with fancy bread – I used the loaf of honey oat bread I always have on hand – and still it turned out amazing. I can’t wait to try it with some fresh panini or french bread. Mmmmm.

Caramelized Onion, Pesto and Buffalo Mozarella Grilled Cheese
1 large sweet onions, sliced
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil

Bread
Butter, softened
Basil pesto
Buffalo mozarella, sliced thinly
Salt & pepper

In a frying pan over medium heat, heat the oil and butter. Saute the onions until soft and caramelized. This should take around 25 minutes.

To make your sandwich, generously spread butter on one side of two slices of bread. Spread some of the basil pesto on both insides of the bread.
Generously pile caramelized onions on one slice of bread. Top with cheese and place the other slice of bread on top, butter side facing out.

Heat a pan on medium-low heat. Grill the sandwich until the cheese has melted and the bread is lovely and golden.
