- This recipe makes 1 sandwich
2 tablespoon softened butter
2 slices white bread (no more than ½ inch thick)
½ cup shredded aged cheddar
1 tablespoon goat cheese
6 slices crisp bacon
Caramelized onions: (makes about ¾ cup)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 medium onions thinly sliced
2-3 tablespoon white or red balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper
In a frying pan over medium-low heat, heat oil and butter; add onions and cook slowly, stirring occasionally. When onions begin to stick, add a little water to deglaze. Continue this process until onions are golden brown; approximately 45 minutes. Once onions are done, deglaze the pan a final time with balsamic vinegar.
Season with salt and pepper and remove from pan. Allow to cool before serving.
Heat a frying pan on medium-low heat. Meanwhile, butter bread on one side and place butter side down in pan to cook until golden brown. Set aside; remove pan from heat.
Assemble sandwich on grilled side of bread. Start by putting half the shredded cheese followed by 2-3 tablespoons of caramelized onions. Crumble goat cheese over onions and arrange bacon on top. Add remainder of cheese and top with bread, grilled side down.
Heat pan again on medium-low heat. Butter top slice of bread and turn assembled sandwich over to place in pan; butter the other side of bread. Cook until golden brown on each side and the cheese has completely melted. about 4 minutes per side
