Ingredients

  • 2

    medium to large yellow onions, sliced 1/4-inch thick

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 1

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1

    teaspoon sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

  • 1/2

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 3

    tablespoon beer

  • 4

    slices sourdough bread

  • 1/2

    cup grated apple smoked gruyere cheese

Directions

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and olive oil together. Add in the onions and stir so they are coated in all the fat. Cook undisturbed for 5 minutes. Stir and add in the salt, pepper, sugar and thyme. Stir, cover the pan with a lid and let cook. Stir occasionally until the onions are soft and a deep golden in color. Reduce the heat if you notice the onions are browning too soon. Add in the beer and scrape any bits that accumulate on the bottom of the skillet and then remove them off of the heat. On a preheated griddle or large skillet; place a slice of buttered bread (butter side down) and top it with a little shredded smoked Gruyere. Add half of the onion mixture and then more of the cheese. Top with a second slice of buttered bread (butter side up). Flip when the bottom is crispy and golden, repeat on second side. Cut in half, serve and enjoy!
