INSTRUCTIONS

1
Caramelize the onions

Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to small bowl and wipe skillet clean. (TIP: You can let the onion cook longer for more caramelization (a process that helps develop the shallot's color and flavor.))

2
Build the sandwiches

Lay sourdough on clean work surface. Spread butter on 1 side of each slice and flip over. Spread Dijon on 2 slices and top with apple slices. Top with caramelized shallot and cheddar. Gently close sandwiches with remaining sourdough, buttered side out.

3
Grill the sandwiches

Transfer sandwiches to same skillet over medium heat. Cook until golden brown and cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Cut cheddar apple melts in half and serve with remaining apple slices. (TIP: If your bread is getting too dark but cheese hasn’t melted yet, lower your heat.)
