Beef Brisket Grilled Cheese with Italico™

Beef Brisket Grilled Cheese with Italico™
Yields 1
The earthy, sweet flavors of Italico™ pair perfectly with roasted beef brisket and onions. The Caramelized Onions with Rum can be made up to seven days in advance—just store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
    1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
    3. 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
    4. ½ teaspoon sea salt
    5. 3 large white onions, halved and sliced ¼-inch thick
    6. 2 tablespoons dark rum
    7. 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
    8. ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
    9. Ground black pepper, to taste
    1. 2 slices Italian bread
    2. BelGioioso Mascarpone (or butter), for greasing bread
    3. 2 ounces BelGioioso Italico™ cheese, sliced into 4 strips
    4. ¼ cup shredded cooked beef brisket
    5. 2 tablespoons caramelized onions with rum
    6. 2 slices cooked bacon
      1. Heat butter and oil in a nonstick skillet over high. Stir in light brown sugar and salt. Add onions and stir to coat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to soften and release some moisture, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are deeply browned, about 40 minutes. Add rum and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
      2. Remove from heat, then stir in thyme and apple cider vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
      1. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat.
      2. Spread a thin layer of mascarpone on 1 side of each bread slice. Place 1 slice in skillet, mascarpone side down, and top with 2 strips of Italico cheese. Add beef brisket, caramelized onions, bacon, and remaining cheese. Top with second slice of bread, mascarpone side up.
      3. Cook until bread is golden brown and cheese has melted, about 2 to 4 minutes per side. Serve warm.
