CHARLESTON Grilled Cheese

Each Grilled Cheese at CHEESEWERKS is named for a city that has a story. Charleston brings memories of the southern sweetness experience when visiting the amazing shops and markets of the Low Country.


  • 60 g double cream Canadian brie , cut into six 1/4
  • 15 g caramelized onions
  • 1 tbsp apricot chutney
  • 2 slices walnut raisin bread
  • 1 tsp salted butter

Caramelized onions

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 large, red onions , halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • salt , to taste
  • black pepper , to taste


  • Bring the sliced Brie to room temperature.
  • Place 3 slices of the Brie on each bread slice; spread the apricot chutney on top of the cheese, then add the caramelized onions evenly between both slices.
  • Gently press together, and butter both sides of the Grilled Cheese.
  • Heat a small skillet or sandwich press to medium heat. Grill the sandwich, turning once for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and the cheese is fully melted. Insure you don’t burn the bread, and adjust the heat down if necessary.
  • Remove from the skillet or grill and let rest for 1 minute. (We know it will be hard).
  • Cut the Grilled Cheese in half diagonally and serve with kettle chips and new dills.

Caramelized Onions:

1 tbsp olive oil
2-3 large, red onions, halved and thinly sliced
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp white sugar
salt and pepper, to taste

Mix sliced onions together with sugar and vinegar. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add onion mixture; cook for 10-12 minutes or until onions are tender, stirring occasionally. All liquid should have evaporated and onions may start to turn golden. Stir in salt and pepper.
