An Easy Grilled Cheese Recipe With Bacon and French Onion Confit

The only thing better than bacon in a grilled cheese is bacon and caramelized onions in a grilled cheese. But have you ever tried to make caramelized onions? It takes approximately ten thousand years longer than the recipe says. And then you burn it. 

Good news: Three Little Fig's delicious French Onion Confit has you covered. Why spend time slaving over the stove when you can just unscrew the jar and quickly transform a sandwich from drab to fab in two seconds flat? 

Time to pig out!

Bacon + French Onion Confit Grilled Cheese

8 oz. Swiss cheese
4 tbsps. softened butter
3 tbsps. Three Little Fig's French Onion Confit
4 pieces cooked bacon
2 slices of white bread

Directions
  1. Grate cheese.
  2. Warm a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  3. Butter 2 slices of bread on both sides. On one side of one piece spread a thick layer of onion confit.
  4. Place both slices of bread in the skillet. On the piece without the spread, layer grated cheese and a handful of bacon pieces. Then sprinkle cheese to cover the surface of the other slice.
  5. Turn heat way down and cook low and slow in the pan until the cheese starts to melt and the underside of the bread turns a light golden-brown (about 5 minutes). To help speed up the process, you can cover the sandwich with a plate, pan or bowl.
  6. Flip the second slice cheese-side-down on top of the one with the cheese and tomatoes. Carefully flip the sandwich with a spatula and cook until the cheese is completely melted and both sides are a full golden-brown (about another 5 minutes).
  7. Enjoy!

Total time: 15 minutes
Serves: 1
