Cranberry Brie Sandwich

I had this grilled cheese sandwich at a restaurant in Edinburgh called "Two Thin Laddies" and it blew my mind. So the first thing I did when I got home was recreate it. Easy and warm with such interesting flavors, perfect comfort food.

Quality bread
cranberry sauce (or any tart berry jam)
2 meduim onions, cut thinly
about 1 Tbsp butter
salt and sugar

Saute the onions on low for 10 minutes, add a sprinkle of salt and sugar and keep stirring until they begin to caramelize. Butter the bread and set a layer of brie, cranberry sauce and a scoop of the caramelized onions. Put the other bread on top and toast the sandwich on low heat until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted. Then be prepared to swoon.
