Grilled Cheese & More for him. His go-to sandwich is the Grilled Cheese, Ham & Onion Melt. It's not exactly healthy, but it is very delicious. (However, he did cut the cheese by 75% from the original because it was a bit too much. He also traded turkey for ham and increased the grilled onion ratio.) If you like grilled cheese, this book provides lots of delicious variations.
Grilled Cheese, Turkey and Onion Melts
2 teaspoons butter or margarine
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/3 cup honey mustard*
2 slices of Muenster cheese
6 slices of thinly sliced smoked turkey
4 slices of rye bread
1. Melt butter in a pan. Add onions. Cook over medium heat until tender, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium-low and add sugar. Cook 15-20 minutes or until onions are caramelized. Stir in mustard and remove from heat.
2.Divide onions, turkey and cheese between two sandwiches. Grill until toasted and cheese is melted.
* We've use ordinary honey mustard which works fine. Cranberry mustard works better. But your very best option is Mary Helen's Mustard Custard Sauce. Wow, that stuff on caramelized onions is amazing. It looks kind of strange on the onions versus regular mustard, but oh is it delicious.
Sorry, no picture. The sandwiches never last long enough.
