This past weekend brought much-welcomed cooler temperatures and bright blue skies to Chicago, perfect for outdoor grilling and watching football. However, much to my chagrin, I was unable to fully enjoy the chilled air as I remained cooped up inside my apartment still nursing my sprained ankle.
In strong need for some cheering up, I managed to indulge in a long overdue craving for an “adult grilled cheese” sandwich made with two slices of homemade whole wheat bread slathered with caramelized onions and piled with shredded Gruyere cheese. I got the idea from watching a guy named Jeff Mauro, who hosts a cooking show called Sandwich King. His version was made on sourdough bread.
