Grilled Cheese Series: BBQ Caramelized Onion and Pepper Jack

This past Friday night I hosted another Feastly Grilled Cheese night at Chez Moi.  Here’s what was on the summery menu that night:

THE MENU

  • Spicy Mango & Basil Sangria
GRILLED CHEESES:

sunshower_-thelma_houston♫ Music Pairing: Funky Jack Flash. ♫

You may know Thelma Houston for this floor-filler; this 1969 version of the Rolling Stones’ “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” is from her debut album, Sunshower.


Ingredients

  • Onions, caramelized 
  • BBQ sauce – everyone seems to have a strong preference.  Go with yours.
  • Pepper jack cheese
  • Sourdough bread
  • Plenty of butter
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)

Instructions

  1. First, caramelize the onions.
  2. Once your onions are done, stir in some BBQ sauce.
  3. In a grill pan (or regular skillet, if you don’t care about grill marks), butter one side of each slice of bread, and grill that. Remove once bread is well grilled.
  4. Lay slice #1 grilled-side down on a baking sheet, and lay down a layer of cheese, then spoon on some of your onion and BBQ sauce mixture.
  5. Lay slice #2 grilled-side down on a baking sheet, and lay down some more cheese. Later you’ll press the two together. See what I did there? Cheese on both sides makes the sandwich stick together nicely.
  6. Once you’ve assembled them all, put them in a 400 degree oven until cheese is melty and bread is crispy on the outside.
  7. Take them out of the oven and press slices one and two together.
