Grilled Cheese With Sauteed Mushrooms

Grilled Cheese With Sautéed Mushrooms

Creamy Italian Fontina, earthy mushrooms, and a dash of truffle oil transform a childhood favorite into elegant little sandwiches. Here comes Grilled cheese with sauteed mushrooms

To most people, grilled cheese implies a few Kraft Singles sandwiched between slices of Wonder Bread. As comforting as it may be, the standard take offers only a glimpse of grilled cheese’s full potential.

A good grilled cheese needs substance, something to turn it from a high-calorie snack into a low-calorie meal, hence the mushrooms and the pile of caramelized onions here. Mushrooms and Swiss are quite good together  so out goes the processed American cheese.

  • 1⁄2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 8 slices rye bread
  • 2 cups shredded swiss/gouda cheese
  • 1 cup caramelized onions
  • 1⁄2 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp softened butter


  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Pour in the mushrooms and cook for about 6 minutes, until nicely caramelized. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Set out four slices of rye bread on a cutting board.
  4. Crown with half the swiss/gouda, then the onions and mushrooms. Put the thyme (if using) and the remaining cheese.
  5. Top with the remaining slices of rye.
  6. Layer the softened butter on both sides of the sandwiches.
  7. Warm a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.
  8. Adjoin the sandwiches, working in batches if you must, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes per side, until fully toasted and golden brown.
