Caramelized onion, mushroom and cheddar grilled cheese

Let's start the week with a veggie lunch idea. A grilled cheese filled with caramelized onion, garlic mushrooms and melted cheddar. It's so good !

I love grilled cheese, so easy to make and you can pretty much throw everything in there. Caramelized onions are so good, takes a little time but it what makes it so good. Don't be shy on the cheddar, it acts as a glue for the filling !

Caramelized onion, mushroom and cheddar grilled cheese (2 pieces) :

  • 4 bread slices
  • 2 onions
  • 150g button mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 150g grated cheddar
  • Butter

Mince the onion thinly.

Add a generous knob of butter in a pan and melt it.

Add the onions to the pan and cook on low heat for 30 to 40 minutes, stir often until caramelized and golden brown.

Mince the mushrooms and grate the garlic.

Add the mushroom, garlic and a touch of butter to a pan. Cook on medium heat until golden and no more watery. Season with salt and pepper.

On a slice of bread, add a layer of caramelized onion, a layer of mushroom, sprinkle some freshly chopped parsley.

Add half of the grated cheddar. Close the grilled cheese with a second piece of bread.

Heat some butter in a pan on low heat, toast the grilled cheese 5 minutes on each side. Cheddar must be melty inside.

Serve warm !
