Nathan requested a sandwich for lunch today and I was thrilled. He doesn't feel the same way I do about sandwiches, so I always take the opportunity to try and convert him to the sandwich side with something truly spectacular. I pulled out the big guns today with some caramelized onion, melted blue cheese, and avocado. I even added some finely chopped kale to add some health to it. He loved it, I am sure you will too!
You Will Need:
French bread from Trader Joe's cut into sandwich slices
1/2 red onion
1 TBS brown sugar (for the onions)
a little mayonnaise for moisture
finely chopped kale
a few basil leaves finely chopped
1. In a medium sized pan over a medium flame, add 1/2 red onion with a table spoon of brown sugar and sautee for a few minutes until caramelized. Heat up your broiler and lightly toast your bread. Remove bread and add chicken, caramelized onions, and top with blue cheese. Return bread with toppings and plain bread to the broiler until the blue cheese is slightly golden. Keep an eye on your bread - every broiler is different! You don't want to burn what you have going on. Once broiled to perfection, add mayonnaise, avocado, kale, and basil. You are ready to serve, ENJOY!
