Awesome Figgy Sandwich

  • 1/4 of a large onion
  • 1 1/2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • kosher salt
  • sugar
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • focaccia bread
  • 2 slices prosciutto
  • 2 – 3 calimyra figs, sliced
  • goat cheese
  • 4 fresh basil leaves

 

In a large skillet, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil and the butter over medium-low heat. Add the onions and a pinch of kosher salt. When the onions begin to brown add a dash of sugar.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and caramelized, about 20 minutes.  Transfer to a cool plate or bowl to stop the cooking process.

While the onions are caramelizing, put balsamic vinegar into a small pot and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until reduced by 1/2 and liquid becomes syrupy, about 5 minutes.

Assemble your sandwich, start with a slice of focaccia, top with prosciutto, figs, onions and goat cheese.  Drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the goat cheese, top with fresh basil and another slice of focaccia bread.

DELICIOUS!
