Give our thin-sliced, hearty, sourdough bread a try next time you have a hankering for a sandwich. It makes a delicious carrier for grilled cheese and deli sandwiches.


  • 2 slices of hearty sourdough or thick sliced Italian bread
  • 2 slices of gouda cheese or smoked gouda
  • 2 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 1 large onion, julienned or thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Butter, unsalted at room temp, as needed
  • 1 cup fresh baby arugula


  • In a pan, sauté onion in the olive oil at medium heat. If the pan dries out, add a splash of water and continue cooking until they are soft and golden brown, but not dry. Set aside.
  • Arrange each slice of bread with a slice of cheddar and gouda cheese.
  • Add arugula and caramelized onions.
  • Top with slice of bread and cheese.
  • Butter the top, and place top side down on a hot griddle until golden brown and cheese begins to melt.
  • Butter bottom bread and flip again to brown.

Chef Tips:

Make caramelized onions ahead to save time. This sandwich has a perfect balance of sour, spicy, richness and sweetness from all its components.
