- 3 softball sized onions
- 1 tbsp of canola oil
- 1/2 tsp of thyme
- 1/8 tsp of salt
- 1/4 cup sherry
- a splash of beef broth
- 1/4lb Swiss, Gruyere or whatever cheese you like
- 1/2lb roast beef
- artisan bread or any hearty crusty bread
Smear the onion mixture on the inside of both slices of bread. Then assemble the sandwich. I like cheese, meat, cheese, but that's my preference. I feel it helps keep the meat in place, butter the outside of the bread and grill like a regular grilled cheese.
I warmed up the remaining beef stock for us to dip our sandwiches in just like a French Dip.
I like to put my heartier grilled cheeses in the oven on 200F to warm the sandwich thoroughly so it's gooey and delicious for about 15 minutes. This works out well in our house, dinner is ready to serve as Rob walks in the door.
As you can see, Maddie loved the concoction.
