grilled cheese | roast beef and smoked gouda

I love Gouda; it's one of my favorite cheeses.  When I saw this recipe, it was different so I wanted to try it.  I was so obsessed with this sandwich, I had it four times--in one week!

from running to the kitchen

makes 4 sandwiches

2 large onions, sliced
4 tablespoons butter, divided
2 tablespoons fresh sage, coarsely chopped
8 slices of sourdough bread
1 pound sliced roast beef
8 slices smoked Gouda
  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Once the butter is melted, add the onions and caramelize until browned.  Turn off heat and add sage.  Allow to sit for about 3 minutes.
  2. Use the remaining tablespoon of butter to spread on one side of each slice of bread.
  3. Layer one slice of cheese on each slice of the bread.
  4. Next lay the roast beef on top of the cheese.
  5. Spoon some of the onions (you may have extra) on top of the roast beef.
  6. Top the other slice of bread/cheese.
  7. Grill according to your tastes: panini press, on top of the stove, or in the toaster oven.  Here is a tutorial on each method.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
I prefer a hot sandwich over a cold one any day (unless it's made to be cold like egg salad or chicken salad).  Are you a classic grilled cheese person, or do you like to experiment?
