  • 1

    sweet yellow onion, sliced into ¼″ rings

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • French bread, thick slices

  • Mayonnaise or roasted garlic aioli (here’s an easy recipe on Art & Aioli – thanks, Nicole!)

  • Roast beef, thinly sliced

  • Gruyère cheese, grated

  • Au jus (see recipe on For the Love of Cooking)



In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Season onions with salt and pepper and sauté in the olive oil for 15-20 minutes until caramelized. Preheat panini grill to medium-high heat (375°F). Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise or roasted garlic aioli on a slice of bread. Top with roast beef, onions and cheese. Close the sandwich with another slice of bread. Grill 7-8 minutes until cheese is melted and grill marks appear. Serve immediately with au jus and enjoy!
