Cooking For One: Carmelized Onion and Roast Beef Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Posted By Jana On June 19, 2013 @ 10:37 am In Cooking For One Recipes | Comments Disabled

Welcome to Cooking For One Recipes [2]!  This series is designed for those of us who don’t need recipes for big meals- just enough for one person to eat without a ton of leftovers.  Or, if you are feeding a large family, you can certainly alter the recipes to whatever amount of people you need!

For those of you who use Pinterest [3] I have created a board that will have all the recipes from this series.  Be sure to follow it [3]!

Grilled cheese sandwiches are a quick and easy lunch or dinner. Over the years I have learned that using good bread is very important in the outcome.  I have also learned not to be afraid to throw some extra ingredients like ham or onions in with the cheese and experiment.

Recently I tried a Caramelized Onion and Roast Beef Grilled Cheese Sandwich and never want a plain grilled cheese again. You won’t want to eat just one it is that delicious!


ingredients 2 [4]

4 slices sourdough bread

1/2 red onion sliced

8 slices Colby cheese

1/4 lb. Roast Beef

about 3 tablespoons butter


1. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan over medium heat and let melt. Once butter is melted add onions and let cook until soft probably about 5-8 minutes. (I cooked mine for all most 8 minutes because we like them more done.)

2. While onions are cooking, butter one side of bread and place 2 slices of bread butter side down on a square frying pan. Place 2 pieces of cheese on each slice of bread. Divide the roast beef evenly between the 2 sandwiches.

3. Once the onions are finished spread onions evenly over both sandwiches. Place 2 more slices of cheese over onions. Top sandwiches with remaining bread and let cook on medium heat until golden brown.

4. Remove sandwich from heat and enjoy!
