In honor of national grilled cheese month Udi’s Gluten Free Foods tasked me with creating a unique grilled cheese sandwich.
The grilled cheese sandwiches begin with Udi’s Gluten-free White Sandwich bread and have a generous amount of bloomin’ onion strings and dipping sauce in between gooey slices of Horizon Organic American Cheese. American cheese is my first choice for grilled cheese and cheeseburgers. I love the way it melts.
I started by making copycat bloomin’ onions that I baked instead of fried. I never had a bloomin’ onion before so I can’t compare the baked version against the fried but I’m certain the fried ones trump all. . . if you’re looking for less fat than the norm these will satisfy. (I included instructions for both baking and frying as well as a link to instructions for slicing the onions.)
The dipping sauce is completely addicting and irresistible. Made with mayonnaise, sour cream, ketchup and seasonings, we almost obliterated the onion strings without leaving enough for the grilled cheese. Oops.
Fried bloomin’ onions may trump baked bloomin’ onions but a bloomin’ onion grilled cheese?
