How To Make corned beef grilled cheese sandwich

  • 1
    Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sprinkle with sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and golden, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in corned beef, worcestershire sauce, and mustard.
  • 2
    Divide half of the cheese between 2 slices of bread; top with the corned beef mixture, saurkraut (if using), and the remaining cheese and 2 slices of bread.
  • 3
    Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sandwiches and cook, pressing occasionally with a spatula, until bread is toasted and the cheese melts, about 4 minutes per side, adding more butter if needed. (I cover sandwiches with a large pot cover, to help cheese melt, and not burn the bread). It works like a charm.
