My recipe this week was pulled off of Better Homes and Gardens. The one I'm sharing is delicious and nutritious!

Sautéed Onion & Tomato Sandwich


  1. 2 medium onions, sliced
  2. 1 teaspoon olive oil
  3. 8 slices whole grain or rye bread (toasted if desired)
  4. honey mustard
  5. 3 small red and/or yellow tomatoes, thinly sliced
  6. 4 lettuce leaves, shredded
  7. small fresh basil leaves
  8. 4 ounces spreadable Brie cheese or tub-style cream cheese


  1. In a large skillet cook onions in hot oil over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until onions are tender and just starting to brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  2. To assemble, lightly spread one side of 4 bread slices with honey mustard. Top with the onion slices, tomato slices, shredded lettuce, and basil. Spread one side of the remaining 4 bread slices with Brie cheese. Place the bread slices, cheese sides down, on top of sandwiches.

My favorite part of summer is the fresh tomatoes. Yum!!!

At 9:07 AM, Blogger Mrs. Pear said...

This sounds so yummy! And I have my very first (not just first of the season) tomatoes beginning to fruit! If they survive the move, I know what I will be doing with them!

These would be great as panini too!

Oh, and for a theme, might I suggest one week doing favorite sauce for meatballs? Such a quick meal to have prepared in the freezer (I make 6 lbs at a time), but not enough good sauces!

At 9:30 AM, Blogger Joyful Days said...

Oh my goodness!! That really sounds wonderful right now. Going to find my grocery list so I can try this.
