The Best Cheese And Onion Sandwich (Like Shop Bought)

Indulging in a homemade cheese and onion sandwich that rivals the taste of your favourite store-bought version is an achievable feat. The secret lies in using quality ingredients and balancing flavours to create a scrumptious filling.

Start with a sharp, mature cheddar cheese that delivers a rich, tangy flavour, and pair it with thinly sliced onions for a touch of sweetness and crunch.

To enhance the taste further, consider adding a dollop of creamy mayonnaise, or even a spoonful of tangy mustard or relish.

With the right blend of flavours and textures, you can create a mouthwatering cheese and onion filling that elevates your homemade sandwiches to the level of the best shop-bought options.

Serving Suggestion for Cheese and Onion Filling

Here are a few ideas that you can use cheese and onion filling for:

  • Combine the filling with cooked quinoa or rice, and stuff bell peppers or large mushrooms for a satisfying vegetarian meal.
  • Layer the cheese and onion filling inside a grilled cheese sandwich for an elevated twist on classic comfort food.

  • Add the filling to a baked potato, then top with a dollop of sour cream and chives for a hearty and comforting meal.
  • Create a savoury crepe by spreading the filling onto a thin pancake, then folding or rolling it up before giving it a quick pan fry to warm through and slightly crisp the edges.

How To Make Homemade Cheese and Onion Sandwich Filling

Grate all cheese and transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the diced onion, chives, mayonnaise and some black pepper to taste.

Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Cheese and Onion Sandwich

  • Use a combination of different cheeses for a more complex flavour profile. Try mixing sharp cheddar with mozzarella or Gruyère.
  • Add some caramelized onions for a sweet and savoury twist.
  • Experiment with different types of bread, such as ciabatta or a hearty multigrain loaf.

Storage

The homemade cheese and onion filling can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. To maintain optimal flavour and texture, it’s best to use the filling within this time frame.

If you need to store it for a longer period, consider freezing the filling in a freezer-safe container or resealable plastic bag. Frozen filling can last for up to 2 months.

When you’re ready to use it, simply defrost it in the refrigerator overnight, then give it a good stir before incorporating it into your desired dish.
