Gruyere, Slow Roasted Tomato, and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese

Gruyere, Slow Roasted Tomato, and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese

So, my daughter started high school today. Time is flying by way too fast!!!

How did I cope? I made this decadent Gruyere, slow-roasted cherry tomatoes, and caramelized onion grilled cheese for lunch. Totally unhealthy. Totally delicious. Totally worth it. I savored each and every bite and LOVED it. This sandwich has such a great combination of flavors & textures–it’s seriously the best grilled cheese I’ve ever had. I may just do it all over again tomorrow when my son starts 7th grade. Gulp.

Make the caramelized onions by heating the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Season with a bit of sea salt, to taste.

Spread butter over one side of a piece of the French bread and place into a skillet over medium heat. Add a thin layer of Gruyere cheese on the bread, then spoon some of the slow-roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic on top, followed by a layer of the caramelized onions.
