Caramelized Onion and Sage Grilled Cheese

31 05 2009

You may have thought that shrimp and the subway was a strange combination, but here’s another unconventional match that I love…

Grilled cheese dipped in Maple Syrup.

It may be because I’m Canadian.

Or it may be because it’s delicious.

Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.

In order to encourage tasting something new, I have provided my newest grilled cheese variation below.

The crisped sage adds a salty bite that makes this savory-sweet combination all the more delicious!

Make it, make it, MAKE IT!!!

Whatchya need:


Sage – fresh whole leaves

Onions – thinly sliced

Cheese (I made it with Provolone)



Whatchya do:

Melt butter in a pan and place the sage leaves in the butter. Cook until crisped, and remove from pan and reserve.

 In the same pan, and the same melted butter, place the sliced onions. Cook on a low-med heat slowly, until cooked down and caramelized. Be patient… this can take a little while. But it’s worth it!!!

 Once they are caramelized, crumble the crisped sage leaves into the onions (or you can crumble the leaves onto the cheese when layering the sandwich).

 Butter your two slices of bread and start to assemble your sandwich. Layer the cheese, onions and bread. Place the sandwich back in the pan and cook until the bread is golden brown. Flip and do the same to the other side.

 EAT! And don’t forget a side of Maple syrup for dipping!!!
