Salametti and apple grilled cheese

This grilled cheese recipe is sure to become a staple in your kitchen for its caramelized onion and sliced original salametti topping!




10 minutes


50 minutes



  • 30 ml (2 tbsp.) olive oil or unsalted butter
  • 2 sweet onions such as Vidalia, peeled and finely chopped
  • Pinch of salt
  • 8 slices of good country bread
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) unsalted cultured butter
  • 1 Empire apple, sliced
  • 8 slices of aged Quebec cheddar (about 150 g)
  • 32 slices Fantino&Mondello Original Salametti


  1. In a large skillet, heat oil or melt butter over low heat. Add onions and a generous pinch of salt. Cook over low heat for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring frequently, or until onions are very caramelized. Remove from heat and set aside.*
  2. Butter all the slices of bread on one side. Spread the caramelized onions on the unbuttered side of four slices of bread. Top with apple slices, a slice of cheese, slices of Original Salametti, then another slice of cheese. Close the sandwiches with the four other slices of bread (buttered side up).
  3. Grill sandwiches in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat until golden (to speed up caramelization, place a heavy object over the sandwiches such as a cast-iron skillet). Flip over carefully and grill until cheese is melted. Cut sandwiches in half and serve immediately.

*You can prepare caramelized onions in advance or use store-bought ones.
