Winter Charm Grilled Cheese


2 slices of Saputo Havarti sliced cheese

1 tbsp. (15 mL) butter

½ Spanish onion, finely chopped

3 tbsp. (45 mL) raisins, rehydrated in warm water (or in alcohol of your choice)

1 sprig of thyme, deleafed

Salt and ground pepper

2 slices of nut bread

1 tsp. (5 mL) of butter at room temperature or mayonnaise

A few pieces of canned artichoke


In a large skillet on high, melt butter and add onions. Brown a few minutes until golden. Lower heat and stir. Cook about 10 minutes stirring regularly. If onions start to stick to the pan, add a bit of water. Onions must be golden. About 2 minutes before the end of cooking, add raisins and thyme. Add salt and pepper, and set aside at room temperature.

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Spread butter or mayonnaise on slices of bread. Add a slice of Saputo Havarti sliced cheese and half the caramelized onions and artichokes on each slice of bread. Carefully fold the grilled cheese into a sandwich.

Preheat a large non-stick pan to medium-low. Cook grilled cheese 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden. Transfer to oven for 5 minutes to finish melting the cheese.
