I’ve been obsessed with Grilled Cheese and Cheese quesadillas lately (well always… but lately now 3-4 times a week.. AH!) so we decided to do a spin on it with some fresh Italian bread and 3 different types of gourmet cheeses. To throw something extra, we sauteed some red onions and threw some fresh basil on there as well!
1 loaf fresh Italian bread, thick slices
- Gorgonzola cheese 45%
- White Cheddar 45%
- Goat Cheese 10%
1 large red onion
- 3 TBsp brown sugar
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- Olive oil
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent about 10 to 15 minutes.
Add the sugar, red wine vinegar and 3 tablespoons water and cook until the liquid is reduced completely and the onions are caramelized, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
- Butter outside of bread and arrange cheese over top, place heaping amount of red onion mixture, then other slice of bread
- Heat large skillet over med-low heat. Place sandwiches into the skillet and cook until the bread is toasted and golden and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes per side. Slice each sandwich in half and serve.
