I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Grilled Lox & Fontina
...in your mind.

Grilled Lox & Fontina

Makes 2 sandwiches - Lox, melty cheese & red onion - what else do you need?


  • 4 slices some kind of whole grain bread, you can use whatever you like but a multi grain will just add more flavor and isn’t that what we’re going for?
  • 4 ounces lox
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • 8 thin slices Fontina cheese
  • Softened butter


  1. Place 2 slices of cheese on each slice of bread, add half the salmon to 2 of them, top that with onion, then remaining cheese and finally remaining bread
  2. Butter one side of bread well and place face down in a heated non-stick pan
  3. Squish down a little to flatten a bit while it’s cooking
  4. When it’s golden brown, butter the top - flip and repeat cooking until golden as well
  5. Remove and cut into wedges to serve
