Camembert Grilled Cheese with Carmelized Apples and Onions

This is a perfect seasonal winter sandwich for your kids and yourself. It's also as frugal as it is yummy since it seems that Camembert and brie are on sale at every grocery store as we near the holiday season, and apples and apples and onions are always affordable (I got a 3 lb bag of organic local apples for 1.99 and a 5lb bag of local onions for .99 ). I used my homemade half whole wheat, half white bread for this sandwich but you could use whatever you have on hand. My loaf was large though, so while I got one big sandwich from these amounts, it would make two with more modestly proportioned bread. This recipe would also be great for the panini press, but I'm not lucky enough to own one. :(

Camembert Grilled Cheese with Carmelized Apples and Onions

- 4 slices of bread- thin slices of Camembert, enough to cover two of the bread slices
- 1 apple, cut into thin slices
- 1/2 small onion, sliced into thin rounds and rings separated
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- black pepper, to taste 

 In a large skilled place 1/2 tbsp butter and the olive oil and melt over medium heat. Once melted, add the onions and apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are browned. Take off the heat and add black pepper. 

While the apples and onions are cooking, prepare your bread by spreading the rest of the butter on one side of the bread slices. Top two of the slices with sliced Camembert. Top both sandwiches with the onion and apple mixture and top with another slice.

Wipe out the frying pan of any excess oil, and then add the sandwiches. Press down with another pan or plate to flatten. Cook until golden, flip, and do the same. 


Makes 2 sandwiches (one for the munchkin and one for you!)
