When I think of a juicy grilled sandwich, all it reminds me of is Ross’ moist maker sandwich in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 😉 I am sure, Friends lovers would know which episode I’m talking about. A perfect grilled sandwich should be easy to gulp down and each bite should be bursting with flavor.
Over here, caramelized onions are the essence of this sandwich. They give a perfectly smoked and intense flavor. They blend in really well with the cheese and the veggies and the sandwich tastes just yum!
2 medium-sized onions cut in julienne
1 tbsp butter
Filling of your choice (I used cottage cheese, onions and green chili)
Salt & Pepper for seasoning
- Caramelizing Onions- Add butter in a heated non-stick pan and add in your onions. Leave them on a medium-low flame for 15 minutes giving it a mix at regular intervals, making sure you don’t end up burning them. Sprinkle a little water if you feel they might burn. It will take more time for more onions. Some people also like to add a little sugar during the process.
- Meanwhile, prepare the filling of your choice. I sautéed onions, green chili and cottage cheese cubes in a non-stick pan with a trickle of olive oil and seasoned it with freshly ground black pepper and salt.
- Assemble your sandwich by adding cheese slices, filling and caramelized onions. Leave it open if you wish to or make a closed one like I did here. Place it on your heated griddle pan.
- I had them with baked potato wedges and cucumber. Have this gooey grilled sandwich with a chilled shake. Just an icing on the cake! 😉
