Grilled Ham and Gouda Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions

Serving Size:Serves 2


  • 2 Tablespoons Brennan's Cellars Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 4 1/3 inch thick slices country white bread or sourdough bread
  • 2 teaspoons, divided Brennan's Honey Mustard
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced smoked ham, divided
  • 3 ounces Gouda cheese, thinly sliced, divided
  • 2 large handfuls (about 1 cup) arugula, torn into bite sized pieces, divided



A heavenly sandwich, salty from the ham and sweet from the cheese and onions. Serve with a fresh fruit salad and a cookie for dessert


Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions; sauté 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook until onion is very tender and golden, stirring frequently, about 25 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper. Cool slightly.

Butter 2 bread slices. Place bread, buttered side down, on platter. Spread on 1 teaspoon of mustard. Divide onion, ham, cheese and arugula between bread slices. Top each with another bread slice; butter top slices.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sandwiches and cook until bread is golden brown and cheese melts, pressing occasionally with spatula, about 4 minutes per side. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally and serve immediately.
