The Cheesy Parisian: French Onion Grilled Cheese

 Active time: 5 min Cook time: 6 min Serves: 1

We ooh-la-LOVE this grilled cheese! Think Croque-Monsieurs if you swap the ham for caramelized onions and the Gruyère for Swiss. That said, we’re pretty cheese-agnostic so you do you. You could even throw in a Kraft single and call it … “An American in Paris!” But we do think that a mild, nutty Swiss is a nice counterpoint for the dipping sauce. And p.s. If you just made a roast and happen to have some homemade “au jus” gold star for you! Otherwise, you can buy pre-made “Au Jus” at your supermarket—look in the soup aisle.

EQUIPMENT:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • Butter/olive oil for sautéing (1/2 Tbsp.)
  • 1/2 cup “Au Jus”, for dipping

DIRECTIONS:

COOK IT.

  • Melt some butter or olive oil over medium heat in a skillet.
  • Add your thinly sliced onion and cook until brown and tender (about 5-7 mins).
  • Take off the heat and set to the side.

BUILD IT.

  • On the first slice layer Swiss cheese/caramelized onion/Swiss cheese
  • Now close it up with the other piece of bread. See how easy that was

TOAST IT.

  • Now place it in the panini press and close and lock the press. Wipe around the outside of the press to clean off any drips with a paper towel. 
  • Place the filled Panini Press into the right slot of your Revolution Toaster with the handles facing out.

Now make your next selection based on the model you have:

Introducing the Revolution Panini Press

Because big appliances are a big pain.

We’re going to assume we don’t need to sell you on the idea of a panini. Who doesn’t love the melty-deliciousness of a pressed sandwich, right? But big appliances are, well, a big pain. You need to lug them out, they can be hard to clean and they take up valuable counter space. This panini attachment is our solution: Simple, compact and super easy to use it gives you the sandwiches you love, minus the mess and hassle you don’t.

  • Heats up quickly: Deliver the panini of your dreams in seconds not minutes. (Learn more about our safe, eco-friendly InstaGLO technology here!)
  • Easy to clean: Wipe down with a sponge or pop it in the dishwasher.
  • Small footprint: Stash it with your coffee, in your bread box or just sit it in the toaster when not in use.

Faster. Smarter. Tastier.
