Grilled Beer & Cheese Sandwiches

Sorry kiddos, you’d get stuck with just plain ole grilled cheese. But oh my WORD, for Joshua and me this sounds droolicious: http://honestfare.com/beer-and-cheese-sandwich/ (click to see original recipe and yummy pictures)

GRILLED BEER & CHEESE SANDWICHES
Recipe
Cook + prep time: 20 minutes (assuming the bread is already made). You’ll want to eat this sandwich over a plate or even with a fork cause it gets messy! It’s great as an open-feced sandwich as well, eaten with a knife and fork.
You need:

Beer bread
Thinly sliced white onion
Some oregano
Worcestershire sauce
Salt
Black pepper
Sharp cheddar cheese
Fontina cheese
Dijon mustard

Directions

Slice onions thin and dice some fresh oregano. Set burner to medium-high heat and drizzle olive oil on pan. Add onions to pan and make sure there is enough oil to lightly coat them all. Sauté onions until they begin to wilt, then add a pinch of salt and pepper, oregano and a couple splashes of worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat to medium low and cover. Cook covered until onions become soft/carmalize (about 10 minutes). Add more worcestershire sauce to taste if you’re into it.
Spread a layer of Dijon mustard on one slice of beer bread. Place desired amount of cheese on top. Place a pile of onions on top of cheese and top with another slice of cheese and bread.
Carefully place sandwich on a pan that’s lightly greased with olive oil and butter. Grill both sides on medium low heat.

If beer bread’s not already made, here’s their recipe:

BEER BREAD
Recipe
Makes 1 loaf bread. Coating top of dough with butter before baking in optional, but really adds to the crust’s texture. Omit for vegan. Cheap beer seems to work best. I tried making it with a really hoppy Samuel Adams and it increased the bake time by about 25 minutes for some reason. The bread turned out good, but with a bit of a bitter aftertaste. Maybe just stick with a cheapo beer or something with less flavor.
You need:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons salt
4 Tablespoons sugar
One 12oz can or bottle of beer. (any beer)
3 tablespoons butter

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Sift well with fork. Pour in beer, stir until a stiff batter is formed, but don’t over mix (best to just use your hands). Scrape dough into prepared loaf pan.
Melt butter and brush across top of dough. This is optional (if you’re vegan), BUT it really adds to the crust. Makes it golden and crusty!
Bake for about 40 or so minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.Bake time will vary with beer type.
