Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese

Servings: 4  –  Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • pinch of sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 tablespoon white cooking wine
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • sliced Provolone cheese


  1. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sliced onions to skillet with a pinch of sugar, salt, and black pepper. Stir well. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  2. Stir in thyme and cook for about 1 minute. Increase heat to medium-high, add cooking wine, and stir frequently until most of the liquid has cooked off.
  3. To assemble the sandwiches, evenly distribute the caramelized onions over 4 slices of bread. Top with Provolone cheese and remaining bread slices. Grill the sandwiches over medium-high heat with the same skillet used to caramelize the onions, turning once and heating until the bread is lightly browned on each side and the cheese is melted.
