Onion Kale Grilled Cheese Onion Kale Grilled Cheese Lazy Gluten Free
A variation on a classic favorite - and a great way to add some veggies!

  • Ingredients: 1 small onion, sliced
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    4-5 kale leaves, rinsed, massaged, and torn to pieces
    2-4 slices of Colby Jack cheese 
    4 slices Canyon Bakehouse gluten free bread
    Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip (enough to coat 4 slices of bread)
  • Instructions: 1) Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add sliced onions and garlic and cook until caramelized (here's a good tutorial on how to caramelize onions).

    2) Add the kale and saute until slightly wilted. Remove onions and kale to a separate plate/dish and set aside.

    3) Keep the skillet on medium heat. Spread mayo on one side of two pieces of bread. Place these mayo-side down into the skillet. Add a slice of cheese, top with onions and kale, and add another slice of cheese (if desired). Spread mayo on the outside of the two remaining slices of bread. Place these on top of the cheese (or kale/onions) with the mayo-side out.
    4) Cook over medium heat for a few minutes, or until lightly browned. Using a spatula, flip sandwich over and cook other side an additional 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
