Most of us, during this terrible pandemic, are trying to limit our trips to the grocers and live off items that we have on hand.  Such is the case with this sandwich.

I had a couple of slices of onion rye that had seen better days, half of a red onion and some blue cheese crumbles that needed to be used up.  What better to make than a grilled Blue Cheese and Onion Sandwich.

I started out by sauteing the onion in a little butter to soften them.  Then I buttered the bread and added the goodies.  Cook. low and slow. to give the cheese a chance to melt while the bread gets golden brown.  

We love grilled cheese sandwiches and I am happy to have some new creations to try, however I"m sure our next one will be Grilled Ham and Cheese to use up some of this leftover Easter ham.  

Happy Easter to you and yours.  Rejoice in our living Lord and find hope in His resurrection.  Stay Home/Stay Safe/Stay Well.

  1. I love sauted onions on grilled cheese sandwiches! Gotta try this one.

  2. Blue cheese and onions makes a great combo!

  3. I've never heard of a blue cheese and onion sandwich but it looks really good!

  4. Those flavors sound WONDERFUL together!! Creamy and tangy and crunchy. Yumm.

  5. It's almost like a French onion soup sandwich but with the delicious tang of blue cheese. Sounds amazing.

  6. This is a classic combination. Love it on hamburger and would be so much easier this way.

  7. The blue cheese and grilled red onions sounded fabulous enough, but then you went and put it on rye bread for maximum flavor. Yum!

  8. This looks delicious. I'm a total blue cheese fan.

    1. Me too. I'm the only one in the family so when we have grilled cheese I indulge myself.
