【香烤洋葱芝士三明治】Onion Grilled Cheese Sandwich




I backpacked to tour Europe during my last year in England. As a student, I had a limited budget, thus was very calculative when it comes to food. I used to go to the local supermarket and bring back some cheese and bread, and that became my staple as long as it last.

Over time it became dry, cold and tasteless, and I almost couldn't stomach it anymore, one morning at the shared kitchen in a Youth Hostel I put up for the night, I saw a beautiful Irish girl making this grill cheese sandwich, the aroma in the kitchen was so warm and welcoming.

I immediately asked her to teach me and with little butter she generously lend me, I made this tasty warm sandwich with a cuppa hot chocolate... that was the first hearty breakfast I had during my trip and I felt like the happiest person on earth!


2 片吐司 

2 片瑞士奶酪 (Swiss Cheese),也可以用Cheddar或者Single Cheese,混合也行

1 大勺 洋葱碎 (也可以用番茄片,玉米粒,青椒丝)

1 小勺 Butter/黄油

2 Slices of toast bread
2 slices of Swiss Cheese or Cheddar cheese or Single Cheese, I sometimes blend the together
1 tbsp  Chopped onion (I sometimes use tomato slices, sweet corn or shredded capsicum)
1 tsp Butter

1. 面包涂上黄油(Butter),然后涂有黄油的那一面向外,在没有涂黄油的那一面铺上奶酪和洋葱碎,盖上另外一片面包,也一样把涂有黄油的那一面向外。

2. 热上一口平底锅,把三文治两面煎成金黄色,间中用铲子轻轻压压。

1. Spread butter over bread, turn it over and place cheese, chopped onion on the other side of bread. Cover it with another slice of bread, butter side facing up.

2. In a cooking pan,  cook the sandwich until slightly brown at the edge, flip the sandwich over and cook until the cheese melts and bread become golden brown in color. Lightly press the sandwich using a spatula.

早餐点心素食的好选择!Good choice for breakfast, snack and vegetarian meal!

  3. do you need oil to grill the sandwich?

  4. Hi Liz, it grill/roasted with the butter we spread over the bread, that is the reason why the butter spread side is facing out.

  5. I like this recipe. It will definitely become my breakfast staple. Thanks.
