Grilled Ham Mozzarella and Onion Sandwich


  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 thin slices sour dough bread
  • 8 slices of mozzarella
  • Ad
  • 4 slices of ham


Melt 1 Tbsp. butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and just beginning to caramelize.

Lay out 2 slices of bread. Top with half the cheese, half the ham, then the onions, then the remaining ham, then the remaining cheese and top with the remaining bread slices.

Using the same skillet and onion drippings, add and melt the remaining butter over medium low heat. Place both sandwiches in the skillet and press to slightly soak up onion dripping and butter mixture and flip the sandwich.

Cook, pressing gently with a spatula, until the bottom is golden and the cheese begins to melt, about 4 minutes, and then flip the sandwich again and cook, pressing gently with a spatula, until bottom is golden, about 4 more minutes.

Hi Deeli, It is after midnight, and I've been well fed all day long, but reading your recipe made me hungry. LOL

I can't wait to try it as it sounds so good. We prefer grilled sandwiches over toasted bread sandwiches anyway, and this is a wonderful combination. Thank you for sharing it with us. Julia in Boca Raton, FL
