    From the Test Kitchen

    Open-faced sandwiches make for a delicious way to layer textures and flavors. Ours pair tender, savory beef and onion with melty fontina. To balance the richness of the sandwiches­—and accent the crunch of the toasted baguette—we’re making a light arugula salad with a tangy sherry vinegar and dijon mustard dressing.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Halve the baguette. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. To make the sauce, in a bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, ketchup, soy glaze, and chopped garlic. To make the dressing, in a separate, large bowl, combine the sherry vinegar, mustard, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

    Cook the Beyond Burger & onion
    2 Cook the Beyond Burger & onion

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and sliced onion. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the patties apart with a spoon, 5 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and the patties are crumbled. Add the sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened and the Beyond Burger™ is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

    Assemble & toast the sandwiches

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the halved baguette on the foil, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil, then evenly top with the cooked Beyond Burger and onion and grated cheese. Toast in the oven 4 to 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the baguettes are lightly browned. Remove from the oven.
