New York Grilled Cheese Recipe

Caramelizing onions takes about 30 minutes, so save this recipe for when you have some extra time and company (this recipe serves two). If time allows, you could even prepare the caramelized onions in advance in a slow cooker. Rather than layering the grated Gruyère and the warm caramelized onions in the sandwich, you should stir them together before making the sandwich.
