Coffin-shaped Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Melted Taleggio Cheese, Caramelized Onions and Apples:
• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 3 red onions, sliced in 1/2 inch slices
• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
• 1 large loaf sourdough bread
• 1 McIntosh apple, sliced thinly
• 4 wedges Taleggio cheese
• Sufficient quantity butter
• Medium non stick pan
Making caramelized onions: Heat a non-stick pan on medium. Add olive oil, onions, separate them, and salt. Sauté for 10 minutes, then turn down heat to medium-low and cook for another 35-40 minutes, until onions are deep amber in color.
Making the sandwich: Cut sourdough into 1/2 inch slices, then into coffin shapes. Heat a pan on medium low and melt enough butter to coat the pan. Lay down a slice of bread, a cheese wedge, caramelized onions, 3 apple slices, and top with another slice of bread. Press down and cook for 3 minutes, until golden brown. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes, until cheese is melted.
Remove grilled cheese from pan, and serve.
