Browned Butter Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Onion Rings

Grilled Cheese Bliss.

Delectable browned butter and 2 types of cheese make up this scrumptious grilled cheese sandwich.

Browned butter has a nutty taste to it and adds delicious richness to a dish.

The fancy French name for browned butter is beurre noisett and it can be used to make warm sauces for all kinds of things including pasta, chicken, or fish.

It’s also used to make pastries and added to vegetables.

Although, grilled cheese may not be a fancy French dish, it sure tastes wonderful made with browned butter.

When making browned butter, it’s recommended that a stainless-steel pan is used in order to see the color of the butter clearly and watch it closely to make sure it doesn’t burn.

I’ve read that whatever you do, don’t use a black bottom pan when making browned butter.

I used a non-stick pan that has a dark gray bottom and the color of the butter can still be seen which is good.

Onion Rings on Plate

In this browned butter grilled cheese sandwich crispy onion rings are added so that with each bite there’s a crunch from the toasted bread and a crunch from the onion rings.  So good.  Here’s the recipe “Crispy Onion Rings“.

Let’s check out the ingredients for this browned butter grilled cheese sandwich with onion rings.

Sliced sandwich bread, butter, sharp cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and crispy onion rings (optional)

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

Heat a large non-stick skillet on medium heat.

If the skillet is large enough to lay out 4 slices of bread, add half of the butter to the skillet.

If the skillet is just large enough for 2 slices of bread at a time, use about a quarter of the butter (a little less than a tablespoon).

Let the butter melt.

Watching it closely, stir the butter until it starts to turn a golden color.

As soon as it turns a golden color lay each piece of bread in the skillet.

Move the slices around to absorb all of the butter in the pan.

Let cook until the bottom sides of the bread are toasted.

Then transfer the toasted bread from the pan onto a plate for a moment.

Add the remaining butter if the skillet is large enough for 4 slices of bread.

If cooking two at a time, add about another tablespoon of butter to the pan.

Stir the butter as it’s melting until it turns a golden color.

Put the slices of bread back into the pan…

…with the toasted sides up.

Then,

…add the cheese to each toasted side of the bread.

Add the onion rings on top of the cheese (optional).

When the bottom sides of the bread are lightly browned, make a sandwich out of the slices of bread and cheese.

Cover the pan with a lid and turn the heat off while the cheese melts.

When the cheese is completely melted remove the sandwich from the pan, cut in half and serve right away.

Sometimes I’m impatient and I’ll remove the sandwich from the pan onto a plate and pop it into a microwave for a quick moment to melt the cheese.

Then,

time to dig in and…

enjoy.
