Grilled Onion and Pepper Jack Cheese Sandwich
- CKD non-dialysis
- Lower Protein
- 1/2 medium onion
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoon whipped cream cheese
- 2 ounces pepper jack cheese
- 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
- 4 slices rye bread
Set butter out to soften. Thinly slice the onion half.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion slices and stir continuously until cooked and soft. Remove the onions from skillet and set aside.
Spread 1 tablespoon of whipped cream cheese on 2 of the bread slices, then add half of the grilled onions and cheese. Top with other bread slices.
Spread the butter on outside of bread slices. Grill the sandwich in a hot skillet until bread is toasted and cheese melts, turning once. Cover skillet with a lid while grilling the sandwich.
- Pre-sliced cheese is usually available in 1-ounce or 3/4-ounce slices. Use 1 + 1/4 slices on each sandwich if slices are 3/4-ounce each.
- Make extra grilled onions and serve with a meat entrée for dinner.
