Four Grilled Cheese Sandwich With Onions

"A delicious grilled cheese sandwich I happened upon randomly. Since this recipe calls for a wider than usual selection of cheese that may exist in a normal household, it's recommended that you purchase a cheese slice assortment. Wouldn't recommend this for kids unless your child likes real cheese, which in my personal experience, is not usually the case."

    Can't go wrong with grilled cheese sandwiches! I typically make grilled cheese with three slices of cheese, so I would probably omit the Swiss cheese when making it again (my least favorite cheese out of the combo in this sandwich). The seasoned caramelized onion was a great addition to the cheese, and would be great on burgers as well. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2012.

    This made a great lunch for us today. In order to get the cheese to melt completely I had to put a lid on the skillet for a few minutes. Made for PAC Fall 2012.

    My DH loved this sandwich, so I gave it 5 stars. I never thought I'd ever say this, but it was too much cheese for me! I will keep the onion mixture on grilled cheese in the future:)Thanks for posting! made for Fall PAC 2012
