Barbecued Onion Sandwich

When we first made barbecued onion sandwich, we thought they were the best sandwich in the world. Well maybe not the best, but certainly in the running.

This is more like a filling, but tastes just as great as a topping for veggie burgers or other sandwiches. Or just add other veggies like cucumbers, mushrooms, and peppers.

I've eaten them both ways. The key to this sandwich is to use your favorite barbecue sauce. My favorite right now is Sweet Baby Ray's. A close second is Bull's Eye.

If you use your favorite barbecue sauce, I'm sure you will love this sandwich. The recipe is very simple and the bread you choose should be able to handle a sauce without becoming soggy, (unless you like soggy).

    The Recipe

    1 large sweet onion (red or Spanish will also work), sliced
    2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil (you can use a small bit of water if you don't want the fat from the olive oil)
    1/4 cup of barbecue sauce (more or less according to your preference
    1/4 tsp. black pepper (optional)
    1 whole wheat bun, kaiser roll or whatever bread you prefer (toasted).

    1.Heat skillet over medium heat
    2. Add oil or water
    3. Add onions to skillet and saute till tender
    4. Add barbecue sauce and black pepper. Heat through.
    5. Pile on your toasted bun, roll, or bread.
    6.Eat and enjoy!

    Adapted from recipe in the Fit for Life Cookbook by Marilyn and Harvey Diamond.

I told you it was simple. And you can easily saute sliced green, yellow, or red, bell peppers, or sliced mushrooms along with the onions. You can slice cucumbers onto your roll before adding the onions.

You can add your choice of cheese and/or a veggie burger. However you use this – as a filling or a topping - you will need lots of napkins when you enjoy this delicious sandwich.
