Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 pound Taleggio, cut into 8 slices
  • 1/4 pound Gorgonzola, cut into 4 slices
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 loaf crusty rustic Italian bread, sliced
Directions
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the sugar, red wine vinegar and 3 tablespoons water and cook until the liquid is reduced completely and the onions are caramelized, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

  • Butter the outside of each slice of bread and arrange, butter side down, on a sheet pan. Put 1 piece of Taleggio onto a slice of the buttered bread, then a piece of Gorgonzola. Top with a heaping tablespoon of the onion jam, and another slice of the Taleggio. Cover it another slice of bread. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Put the sandwiches into the skillet and cook until the bread is toasted and golden and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes per side. Slice each sandwich in half and serve.
