Step 1

In a skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add onions, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until browned and tender (20-30 minutes).

Step 2

Spread about 1/4 cup of the onion of each of 2 slices of bread; cover with cheese and top with remaining bread slices. Spread butter on top of bread.

Step 3

Heat a skillet over low heat (I would use the same skillet as I cooked the onions in) and place sandwiches, buttered side down in the skillet. Grill sandwiches for 5-10 minutes per side; cover pan during last few minutes of cooking to melt the cheese.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This was delicious, I loved the addition of onion and nutmeg. A keeper.

We really like the nutmeg in the onions! DH said after his first bite that it was "awesome"! I did leave out the salt, and used homemade grainy bread. Serve this with chipotle ketchup. Will be making this great sammy again! Thank you for sharing Ellie. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
