Grilled Cheese with Tomato Jam and Carmalized Onions

Grilled Cheese with Tomato Jam and Carmalized Onions

Earlier this week I gave you a recipe for tomato jam, as well as a few suggestions on how and where to use it. I have used my batch of tomato jam on a few different things, but this grilled cheese sandwich is by far my favourite. It may take a few extra steps than a standard grilled cheese, but it’s so worth it, and it stills comes together in no time.

  • 2 slices white bread $0.28
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided $0.24
  • 2 tablespoons tomato jam $0.26
  • 1 onion, sliced $0.47
  • 2 slices crispy cooked bacon $0.60
  • 1 slice Swiss cheese $0.50

Total cost $2.35

1.) Place 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium-sized saucepan set over medium-low heat. When melted, add onions and stir to thoroughly coat. Allow onions to cook slowly for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are very soft and have carmalized, turning brown throughout.

2.) Using the remaining butter, butter one side of each slice of bread. Place the bread in a frying pan set over medium heat, butter-side down.

3.) Spread the tomato jam evenly over each slice of bread. On one slice, place the Swiss cheese, carmalized onions, and the 2 slices of bacon. Top with the other slice of bread.

4.) Grill the sandwich for a few minutes until one side is brown and crispy. Flip and grill the other side for another few minutes, until that side is also golden, the cheese is melted, and the sandwich is hot throughout.

5.) Remove the grilled cheese sandwich from the heat and allow to rest for a few minutes before slicing in half.

6.) Serve and enjoy!
