Mushroom and Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4


  1. 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  2. 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sliced white mushrooms
  3. 1 onion, sliced
  4. 1/2 tsp (2mL) fresh or dried thyme leaves
  5. 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter, softened
  6. 8 slices sourdough bread
  7. 1 cups (250 mL) shredded smoked applewood Cheddar


  1. In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook mushrooms, onion, and thyme, stirring occasionally, until pale golden, about 5 min.
  2. Spread butter over 1 side of each bread slice. In clean skillet, place 2 bread slices, butter-side down. Top each slice with one-quarter of the mushroom mixture and cheese. Top each portion with another bread slice, butter-side up.
  3. Cook over medium heat until bottom bread is golden, 3 to 4 min. Using a flexible spatula, carefully flip and press to flatten slightly. Cook until cheese is melted and bottom bread is golden, about 1 min.
  4. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 2 more sandwiches
