Brussels Sprouts Grilled Cheese with Caramelized Onions

  • Author: Autumn Reo of


This is the best flavors of fall sandwiched together between two pieces of bread.


  • 2 pieces bread (This is where crusty bread, especially gluten free does amazing!)
  • 1 cup brussels sprouts, sliced (you can use leftovers)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 slice gouda cheese (or 3!)


  1. To make caramelized onions, melt tablespoon butter to a medium high skillet and add onions.
  2. Stir them around to not stick and let them begin breaking down.
  3. Add sugar and continue stirring. After a few minutes, add water and turn down heat to medium to let the water and sugar liquify into sweet sauce. Set aside.
  4. To cook brussels sprouts, melt butter to a medium hot skillet. Next add the brussels and still to cook.
  5. Depending on how you like yours, I like a little crunch, so let them get golden brown but not get completely wilted (I like a mix.)
  6. Next in another skillet add bread that’s been buttered on all sides.
  7. Let it get golden and add brussels sprouts and then onions.
  8. Lastly, add cheese and cover with slice.
  9. Let both sides get nice and golden.
  10. Serve immediately!


  • You can use other cheeses, but Gouda has a great flavor and melts perfectly with these ingredients.
