I was thinking a sun dried tomato (sliced up) might be good too.

I agree with the sliced tomato. Sometimes simple is good.
A very light spread of mayo on the bread browns it nicely without getting greasy. I learned that trick from our daughter when she worked in a deli in college.

Me too Charlie. When I go out to eat, I don't want to have to work for my food starting with trying to figure out the menu. As much as I like their meatloaf, I hate going to the Cheese Factory. They have turned their menu into a novel.

Indeed. Cheesecake Factory has one of the most extensive menus. Another was a diner in Joisey next to the hotel, when we were there for a niece's wedding. I think it was like 20 pages of menu. We just kept ordering the crab cakes every day, which were excellent.

That menu does look good, GG.

Tomato is yummy, but sometime I like bread-and-butter pickles better. Then there are those times that a couple slices of crisp bacon...

Well, it is basically onion soup reduced to just the onions. You don't need as much broth, obviously, but you can start to fry your onions down with what you would when you are making soup. Add garlic, thyme, pepper, sherry or red wine, parsley, and a bit of beef broth. Keep reducing until you get your onion jam. You can let it cool and use it however you want..Add it with Gruyere and/or Mozz in a grilled cheese and voila! French Onion!!

So, do you make up a batch and keep it handy in a jar in the fridge? It sounds tasty. Thanks for the instructions.

Sometimes. It will keep for a few days in the fridge. It is great with roast beef sandwiches also...
