Tips from Home Chefs

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the arugula. Halve the bread horizontally. In a bowl, combine the dijonnaise and as much of the hot sauce as you like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Halve and pit the avocado; using a spoon, remove the avocado from the skin, then thinly slice. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onions. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater.

2 Cook the bacon

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the bacon on the foil; arrange in an even layer. Roast 10 to 12 minutes, or until cooked through and crispy. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate.

3 Toast the bread

Meanwhile, place the halved bread on a separate sheet pan, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Top the bottom half with the grated cheese. Toast in the oven 7 to 9 minutes, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Transfer to a cutting board.

4 Cook & glaze the onions

Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the raspberry spread and 2 tablespoon of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly coated. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Evenly spread the spicy dijonnaise onto the top half of toasted bread. Top the cheesy bottom half with the sliced avocado (mashing lightly with a fork), glazed onions, cooked bacon, and arugula. Cover with the top half. Cut into 8 equal-sized sandwiches. Enjoy!
