Balsamic Caramelized Onions and Cheese Sandwich

Photo Credit: Health is Wealth Photos.

For the caramelized onions:
2 teaspoons Coconut oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced...
black pepper
Balsamic vinegar

For the grilled cheese:

1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
2 slices brown bread
2 slices sharp cheddar cheese

Make the caramelized onions:

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the sliced onions, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very soft, about 10 minutes.

Add the balsamic vinegar and reduce the heat to low. Continue cooking the onions, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes until they are very soft and dry.
Slices of bread with the butter and set them aside.

Assemble the grilled cheese sandwiches by stacking one slice of cheese atop one slice of bread (the non-buttered side) and topping it with half the caramelized onions, a second slice of cheese. Top it with another buttered slice of bread (buttered side on top).

Heat a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat. Place sandwich on the skillet and cook until the bread is toasted and golden and the cheese begins to melt. Flip sandwich once and continue cooking until the opposite side of bread is toasted. Slice and serve. Enjoy!
