Grilled Apple, Bacon & Chedder Sandwiches With Roasted Red Onion Mayo

I'm tellin' y'all... delishhhhh!

For 1 Sandwich -
  • 2 Slices (1/2-inch-thick) Hearty Bread (Sourdough, Multigrain, etc.)
  • 4 Slices Tick-Cut Bacon; Cooked Crisp
  • 4 Slices Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Granny Smith Apple; Cored & Sliced Thin
  • Roasted Red Onion Mayo; Recipe Follows
  • Butter
Preheat a seasoned griddle or cast iron over medium heat.

Assemble this sandwich just as you would a traditional grilled cheese:
  1. Spread 1 slice of bread with some Red Onion Mayo.
  2. Top with 2 slices Cheddar.
  3. Then the bacon & apple slices.
  4. Then 2 more slices of Cheddar.
  5. Finishing with another mayo-slathered slice of bread.
  6. Butter the outsides of the bread & trasfer to the hot grill.
Grill about 3 minutes per side, (since the sandwich is so thick!)

Remove to a cutting board & cut the sandwich in half on the diagonal to serve.

Roasted Red Onion Mayo
  • 1 Medium Red Onion; Chopped
  • 2 t. Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 c. Mayonnaise
On a small rimmed baking sheet, toss the red onion, olive oil, salt & pepper together.
Roast in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, until the onion is very soft, stirring occasionally.
Remove from oven & let cool.

Transfer to a food processor & buzz until the onion is finely chopped. Add the mayo & pulse until smooth & combined.
