2-3 tablespoons olive oil
4 bunches spring onions; 2 white and 2 red, green top removed, onion thinly sliced
Salt, to taste
8 slices sourdough bread
½ pound escarole, washed, dried well and sliced into bite sized pieces
¼ pound Spring Hill Colby-jack cheese, shredded
¼ pound Spring Hill white cheddar cheese, shredded
- Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and add a scant tablespoon olive oil. Add sliced onions and cook gently, stirring occasionally until they turn medium brown in color. Add a pinch of salt, set aside.
- Brush both sides of bread slices with a bit of olive oil. Put a layer of the onion mixture on 4 of the slices of bread. Add a layer of escarole and cheese and top with the remaining slices of bread.
- Heat a grill pan or non-stick skillet to medium high, grill the sandwich on side, pressing down with a spatula, until bread is golden brown, flip and cook until second side is also golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve.
