These little sandwiches are pretty dang tasty. Umami overload. My favorite. Next time I will add roast beef or pastrami. A delicious meal with very little effort.
Grilled Cheese with Smoked Gouda, Roasted Mushooms and Onions
- 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 4 tbsp butter
- 4 slices good bread
- 1 cup smoked gouda, shredded
Preheat oven to 400°F. On a baking sheet, toss sliced mushrooms and onion in olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast the veggies for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browning around the edges.
In a non-stick skillet, melt the butter. Take the four slices and dip them in the melted butter. Be sure that the butter is evenly coating the four sides. Remove the skillet from the heat. Assemble the sandwiches in skillet in this order- bread (butter side down), 1/4 of the cheese, roasted onions and mushrooms, 1/4 of the cheese, bread (butter side up). Lightly press together to help things settle. Grill over medium heat until each side is lightly browned and the cheese is melty. Inspired by this recipe.
