See why all you need is a firm cheese.


Ingredients

1 large red onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) red wine vinegar
1 tbsp (15 mL) honey
Butter, softened
12 slices crusty bread each 1/2 inch thick (12 mm)
12 oz (375 g) thinly-sliced deli roast beef
Horseradish or
Dijon mustard, to taste
12 oz (375 g) Canadian Swiss-type* cheese, thinly sliced

Preparation

Cook onion in hot oil in large non-stick frypan over medium heat, stirring frequently until onion is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in vinegar and honey. Add salt and pepper to taste; set aside.

Spread butter over both sides of each slice of bread. Broil or grill 1 to 2 minutes per side or until lightly toasted and crisp around the edges; place on wire rack to cool.

Cover each slice of bread with roast beef. Spread with a little horseradish or mustard, if desired. Top with Canadian Swiss-type cheese and onion mixture.

Tips

Melt shredded Canadian Swiss on scrambled eggs and cooked crumble bacon. Serve on split croissants.

Stir shredded Canadian Swiss into hot Leek and Potato soup. Sprinkle with chopped fresh dill.

*For a change of taste use other Canadian cheeses : Havarti, Sharp Cheddar or Provolone.
