  • Fry pan


Cheese and Onion Sandwich

  • 4 slices multigrain sourdough Note 1
  • 2 tablespoon dried onion Note 2
  • 40 grams butter softened
  • cup cheese Note 4
  • 1 teaspoon oregano dried
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves dried
  • ½ teaspoon garlic granules Note 3
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


Cheese and Onion Sandwich

  • Place butter in a small mixing bowl, add oregano, thyme, salt and pepper, use a spoon to thoroughly mix together
  • Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread Note 4
  • Place buttered side of bread down onto pan surface
  • Divide the cheese between the 2 sandwiches and sprinkle it onto the bread, keeping in between the crusts
  • Divide dried onion between each sandwich and sprinkle it on the cheese
  • Place remaining slice of bread buttered side up for each sandwich
  • Cook at a medium - low temperature for approx 5 mins each side, allowing butter to melt and bread to toast before flipping (use a flat slotted spoon) to cook other side
  • Serve with small bowls of balsamic vinegar and oregano leaves (optional)


  • Note 1: use any bread you like, but choose the pieces that don't have holes as other wise your cheesy deliciousness will ooze on out through them. 
  • Note 2: this is dried and is sold in the cooking aisle (herbs etc) 
  • Note 3: these are also dried and will also be with the herbs and spices at the shops
  • Note 4: butter all the way to the edges so that the grilled cheese won't stick to the pan
  • Note 5: Mozzarella, grated, tasty and light are all good cheese to use for grilled cheese
  • Note 6: Serving suggestion is 1 cheese and onion sandwich per person
