Making grilled cheese is genuinely one of the simplest things you can do. The simplest way to make grilled cheese is to combine bread and cheese and cook the sandwich on a skillet. Making grilled cheese as fast and easy as possible is just fine, but the trick we’re going to reveal will make your next grilled cheese sandwich taste a hundred times better.

The Beating Hearth is the source,

Mayonnaise, not butter, is what you should use on grilled cheese, says Pure Wow. A nonstick pan set over low heat will do the trick. Apply a uniform coating of mayonnaise to the exterior slices of bread rather than buttering them. Once the bread begins to develop a golden brown color, carefully turn the sandwich over and fry the other side as well.

Three Cheese and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese with Balsamic Glaze

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of artisan bread (sourdough, ciabatta, or your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze (store-bought or homemade*)

Instructions:

  1. Caramelize the Onions:
    • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat.
    • Add the thinly sliced onions to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. Assemble the Sandwiches:
    • Spread a thin layer of softened butter on one side of each slice of bread.
    • Place two slices of bread, butter side down, on a clean surface.
    • Divide the shredded mozzarella, sharp cheddar, and crumbled goat cheese evenly between the two slices of bread.
    • Top the cheese with a generous portion of caramelized onions.
    • Place the remaining slices of bread on top, butter side up, to form sandwiches.
  3. Cook the Grilled Cheese:
    • Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
    • Carefully transfer the assembled sandwiches to the skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 3-4 minutes per side. You may need to press down gently on the sandwiches with a spatula to help the cheese melt.
    • Remove the grilled cheese sandwiches from the skillet and let them rest for a minute before slicing.
  4. Serve:
    • Slice the grilled cheese sandwiches diagonally and drizzle each sandwich with a tablespoon of balsamic glaze.
    • Serve hot and enjoy!

*Note: To make homemade balsamic glaze, simply simmer 1 cup of balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat until it reduces by half and thickens to a syrupy consistency, about 15-20 minutes. Allow it to cool before using.

This gourmet grilled cheese is a delightful combination of creamy cheeses, sweet caramelized onions, and tangy balsamic glaze, all nestled between perfectly grilled slices of bread. It’s sure to impress your taste buds!
