    Things To Grab

    • Small bowl
    • 2 medium skillets with lid
    • Wooden spoon
    • Spatula


    1. Make Mayo and Butter Spread: In a small bowl, mix together softened butter and mayonnaise until well combined. Set aside.

    2. Make Caramelized Onion Spread: Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onions to pan and season generously with salt. Continue cooking until onions are very soft and caramelized, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once caramelized, add thyme and sherry being careful not to ignite. Stir in chicken broth and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. 

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      Don’t skip the salt! Salt removes the excess water from the onions and helps them caramelize.

    3. Make Grilled Cheese Sandwiches: Spread Mayo and Butter Spread on to one side of the bread slices. Flip and spread 4 slices of bread with Caramelized Onion Spread and top with even amounts of fresh mozzarella, provolone, and Gouda. Top with remaining bread slices to create 4 sandwiches, Mayo and Butter Spread side up. 

    4. Preheat another medium skillet over medium-low heat. Place sandwiches in preheated skillet and cover the pan with a lid. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese begins to melt and bread is golden brown. Remove lid and flip. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until other side is golden brown. Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining sandwiches.
