instructions
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.

Cook the bacon
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.

Toast the bread
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.

Cook & glaze the onions
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.
