the recipe below was copied off of a ny newspaper’s website. to the best of my knowledge, all listed ingredients are available in brands that have a hechsher. it sounds delicious, but it also sounds like a bit of work for a grilled cheese sandwich. maybe, with a few shortcuts, on a sunday morning…
1 medium yellow onion
6 tablespoons cultured
3 tablespoons good balsamic
4 ounces cremini mushrooms
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
8 slices of rosemary Pullman
4 ounces aged domestic
4 ounces aged cheddar
4 ounces creamy blue cheese
Stir in the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook until the onions are syrupy and there is very little liquid in the pan. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from pan and cool.
Heat a panini maker or a ridged, cast-iron pan over medium heat. Put a thin layer of butter on the outside of the bread slices. On the unbuttered side, add 1 ounce of Gruyere, cheddar and blue to four slices of bread. Spoon a generous amount of onion and 1 T. of mushrooms on top of the cheese. Cover with the remaining bread slices so that the buttered sides are facing out.
Place sandwiches on the grill and cook until the bread is crisp and the butter is melted.
If using a cast-iron pan, place another slightly smaller pan on top of the sandwiches to weight them down. Turn after a couple of minutes and repeat.
Looks heav, but who would work that hard on a sandwich?
For that many ingredients, Im goin out to eat..
easier recipe, take 2 peices of white bread, challah or any bread, put 1-2 peices of cheese in between, place in toaster oven and bake until cheese is melted, enjoy …. sorry ICOT yours sounds delicious and gourmet, but too many ingredients and work, so I’ll continue with my way
not so common – But this time it is common. That’s how I make it. 1 piece for two slices. I don’t put the 2 slices together until after everything is finished toasting.
I made a really good one the other nite. I took English muffins, cut in half, put Don Pepino pizza sauce on them. Then I took Amer. cheese and ripped them into small pieces and laid on top. Then I baked in toaster oven until cheese was well done. Delicious!
sounds gr8 but if you dont want to waste so much time, fried onions on a bed of cheese is gr8 too
