BBQ’d French onion grilled cheese


  • 1 French loaf of bread, cut into one large sandwich
  • 6 medium vidalia onions, sliced thinly
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 8 slices mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  1. Start by cutting and cooking onions on medium to low heat for an hour until soft and caramelized and let cool.
  2. Take a loaf of French bread (not baguette!!) and cut horizontally as if you were making one large sandwich.
  3. Place the onions and cheese inside the bread and close up.
  4. Brush the melted butter with all herbs and spices in the butter, all around the loaf and place on a medium heated grill.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes, turning and moving making sure not to burn the bread. Make sure to constantly brush with melted butter.
  6. Right when you’re about to take the loaf off the grill, press down on the loaf like a panini.
  7. Cut into pieces and serve.
