Smoked Cheddar, Caramelized Onion & Apple Grilled Cheese


  • 2 tbsp butter   #44115
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced   #87035
  • ¼ tsp salt   #13790
  • Pinches of granulated sugar (#9580)
  • 4 walnut or raisin walnut bread, sliced
  • 4 oz smoked cheddar, thinly sliced   #20620
  • ½  granny Smith, thinly sliced   #87000



  • Saute onions in a little butter, season with salt and sugar. Stir just until onion starts to soften, a couple of minutes. Reduce heat to low and stir frequently until a deep golden colour, about 10 minutes.
  • Spread remaining butter over 1 side of each slice of bread (walnut bread tends to be small so you may have enough for 3 sandwiches). Place half the cheddar on 2 or 3 slices. Top with onions (you will have leftover) then apple. Finish with remaining cheddar and bread, butter-side out.
  • Grill over medium heat until cheese is melted and bread slices are golden, 3 to 4 minutes a side. Press with spatula to help sandwiches stick together better.
