Asparagus and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese

Directions

Elevated grilled cheeses are a hot menu item right now, and they can be made using all kinds of different fillings. You can even draw inspiration from your gourmet burger toppings or change the ingredients with the seasons. The most important thing is to use a cheese that serves up great taste and texture when melted. Caciocavallo cheese is our pick, since it melts like a charm and has a mild buttery palate with a touch of nuttiness. Add some grilled asparagus cut in halves and caramelized onions for earthiness and depth, then some cooked ham for a salty burst. The finished product will be an expertly balanced bite!

Chef's Tips

For a delivery-friendly version, assemble the sandwich and provide customers with heating instructions (if pre-grilled, the cheese won’t maintain an optimal texture while in transit). You can also pre-assemble sandwiches meant for takeout the night before, so all you need to do the next day is grill, wrap, and serve.
