Carmelized Onion & BBQ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

This recipe is part of a regimen I feed to add weight to my CF DDF508, GERD, CFRD 35 y/o husband.


2 slices of bread
2 slices sharp cheddar
2 slices pepper jack or other spicy cheese (optional)
1/4 large red onion, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp butter, divided
2 Tbsp BBQ sauce


Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced red onion and stir occasionally until color changes to slightly brown and taste is sweet, about 10-15 minutes. Remove onions from skillet and set aside.

Spread butter onto one side of each slice of bread.

Spread BBQ sauce evenly opposite the butter side. Lay cheddar cheese on top of sauce. Top with caramelized onion, then top with pepper jack. Finish assembly by placing remaining bread slice on top. The butter sides of the bread should both be on the outside of the sandwiches.
Melt the remaining butter in the skillet on medium-low. Cook sandwiches two at a time, flipping when bread is golden brown on one side and cheese begins to melt. If cheese is not melting quickly enough, place a lid over the pan or use a heavy skillet to place on top and press the sandwiches down.

Approx. Total Carbs: 45g per sandwich
