Share-A-Chef Wednesday

Hey Everyone! Welcome to Wednesday and the midpoint of our weeks. Yay for that! This week has been pretty eventful for the hubby and I. We went to the NYS Fair and had a blast spending the day together and then we spent some time with family and had dinner and now I am in the process of prepping my house for Fall! I can't wait to get my fall candles burning! This week I wanted to share with you an amazing "Grilled Cheese" recipe courtesy of Jeff Mauro. I know grill cheese and soup is one of my go-tos for the cooler months and I am sure this recipe will be added to the mix. 

So first a little about Jeff Mauro. Jeff was born in Chicago and from the get go he was already a character. Raised in a large family with four kids Jeff competed for attention through making his family laugh. Once Jeff discovered his love for food he knew exactly where he was suppose to be. After graduating from Bradley University in Peoria, Ill he opened up Prime Time Deli & Catering in Westmont, Ill. With his professional cooking knowledge Jeff moved to Los Angeles in hopes of combing his love of food and comedy. He ended up winning Season 7 of Food Network Star and currently co-hosts the show "The Kitchen". Jeff lives in Chicago with his wife Sarah and their five year old son, Lorenzo.

Jeff's Grown-Up Grilled Cheese (02:26)
Gruyere and caramelized onion make Jeff's grilled cheese a grown-up treat.
Watch how to make this recipe
Melt 1 tablespoon unsalted butter with 1 tablespoon olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Slice 2 yellow onions 1/4-inch thick from root to tip and add to pot. Season with salt and cracked black pepper, and spread in an even layer. Cover and turn heat to medium-low. Sweat, steam and soften the onions, 10 to 15 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until caramelized, 25 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 1 tablespoon dry sherry and scrape up any bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme and season with salt and pepper. Preheat the griddle to medium-low heat. Put 1 slice white American cheese on 4 pieces country white bread and 1 slice yellow American cheese on 4 more bread pieces. Add some onions. Close and butter both sides with softened salted butter. Place on the griddle; cover with a metal bowl and let the sandwiches get a nice golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip, cover again and cook until the cheese is melted and the sandwiches are golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

Food Networks Kitchen Tip: Be patient! Let the onions get nice and brown to coax out maximum flavor.
