How to make it

  • In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over low heat.
  • Add the onions and cook very slowly, stirring occasionally, until they turn a dark golden color, 30 to 40 minutes. If the onions begin to scorch, add about 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Remove the onions from pan and set aside.
  • Wipe the skillet with a paper towel, but do not wash it. (The onions can be prepared up to 6 hours in advance and kept covered at room temperature.)
  • Heat the same skillet over the medium-high heat.
  • Add the cumin seeds and toast just until they become fragrant, about 3 minutes (watch carefully, they burn easily).
  • Remove the seeds and let cool briefly. Do not wash the skillet. When the seeds are cool, crush them using a mortar and pestle. Or place them in a reasonable plastic bag and lightly pound with a mallet or the bottom of a heavy skillet.
  • In a medium bowl, toss the crushed seeds with the cheese.
  • To assemble: Butter one side of each slice of bread with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  • Place 4 slices on your work surface, buttered side down.
  • Distribute the cheese evenly over the 4 slices, followed by the onions.
  • Place the remaining 4 bread slices on top, buttered side up.
  • Brush the grill rack with oil and preheat the grill to medium-high. Put the sandwiches on the grill(in batches if necesary), cover, and cook for 2 minutes, or until the undersides are golden brown and the cheese has begun to melt.
  • Uncover, and turn the sandwiches with a spatula, pressing firmly to flatten them slightly.
  • Cook for 1 minute, or until the undersides are golden brown.
  • Turn the sandwiches again, press with the spatula, and cook for 30 seconds, or until the cheese has melted completely.
  • Serve immediately.
