  • 8 slices french bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 8 slices gouda cheese
  • 4 tomato slices

  • Heat skillet over medium heat. Add oil. When the oil is hot, add the sliced onions and cook until caramelized, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, butter one side of each slice of bread. This will be the side to go on the outside of the sandwich.
  • Place a slice of gouda cheese on top of the unbuttered side of the bread. then add a tomato slice and then about a tablespoon of caramelized onions. Then top with another slice of cheese. Lastly top with the other slice of bread (buttered side up).
  • Place the sandwich (buttered side down) in the skillet. Let cook about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown.
  • Using a spatula, flip the sandwich so the other side of the sandwich is facing down on the skillet. Let cook for a few minutes until the cheese on the other side of the sandwich is melted, and the bread is golden brown.
  • Repeat for the above process for each sandwich.
