We really enjoyed these sandwiches! I did have to sub for the cheese. I KNOW I bought gouda but I'll be darned if I can find it so I had to use muenster slices which worked wonderfully. Otherwise, I made as posted. The sweet caramelized onions really add to the sandwich. I used a country white bread which made a nice large sandwich. Thanks for posting!
