Broccoli and Cheddar Grilled Cheese

When I saw this recipe I needed to make them right away.  I had such high hopes for these sandwiches and they sure didn't disappoint.  I'm not sure I will ever make a regular grilled cheese again.  I served them with Creamy Basil Tomato Soup and it was a delicious dinner.  This recipe is from Domestic Superhero.

1/2 medium yellow onion (chopped)
1 large head of broccoli (chopped well)
7 tbsp butter
6 slices sharp cheddar cheese
1 garlic clove (minced)
salt and pepper
6 slices bread

Melt 4 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a skillet. Saute the onion and saute for a minute then add in the garlic and saute for another minute.  Stir the broccoli in and continue cooking for 5 minutes stirring often or until the broccoli is tender.  Remove from skillet and place in a bowl.  Wipe out the skillet and turn the heat to low.  Melt 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet.  When the better is melted put down 3 slices of bread, layer 1 pieces of cheese, 1/3 of the broccoli mixture, another slice of cheese and top with the remaining slices of bread.  Once the sandwiches have browned on one side, melt the remaining butter and flip and cook on the other side.  Remove from skillet and serve.
