Sweet and Spicy Caramelized Onion & BBQ Grilled Cheese

Don't lie! I know you have water in your mouth....

Here is the recipe for this delicious sandwich.

Sweet and Spicy Caramelized Onion & BBQ Grilled Cheese, serves 4


8 slices challah bread
4 slices sharp cheddar
4 slices pepper jack or other spicy cheese
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
3 Tbsp butter
2-4 Tbsp BBQ sauce, depending on how much you love BBQ (I used Stubb’s Sweet Hot, and it was perfect)


Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced red onion and stir occasionally until color changes to slightly brown and the taste is sweet about 10-15 minutes. Remove onions from skillet and set aside.

Spread 1 Tbsp of the remaining butter onto one side of each slice of bread.Divide BBQ sauce evenly among 4 of the slices, and spread evenly opposite the butter side. Lay cheddar cheese on top of sauce. Divide caramelized onion among the sandwiches, then top with pepper jack. Finish assembly by placing remaining bread slices on top. The butter sides of the bread should both be on the outside of the sandwiches.

Melt the remaining butter in the skillet on medium-low. Cook sandwiches two at a time, flipping when the bread is golden brown on one side and cheese begins to melt. If cheese is not melting quickly enough, place a lid over the pan or use a heavy skillet to place on top and press the sandwiches down.
