I absolutely love sandwiches. There is just something about them. Flavors and possibilities are endless! If I could, I would probably eat sandwiches 3 times a day, but that probably wouldn’t be very healthy, so I try not to do that.
But I won’t lie… sometimes I do have a full sandwich day…
This breakfast smoked salmon sandwich is simple and delicious, but you know what? You can make it for dinner too! So let’s just get into it.
What you will need is:
Sourdough Bread 1 large slice
Smoked Salmon 50g
1 Medium Onion (White or Red)
Aged Goat Cheese or a hard cheese such as Parmesan
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
Good pinch of Sugar (for caramelized onions)
Slice the onion and drop it in the heated pot with some olive oil. Add a good pinch of salt and sugar to help it caramelize nicely. Stir occasionally. Once the onions turned golden brown, add a splash of balsamic vinegar, cook a little bit longer (around 30 seconds) and take it off the heat. Transfer it to another container or a plate and let it cool.
Toast the slice of sourdough bread on the gill, grill pan, oven or a regular pan until it is crispy and golden brown. Or, if using grill, until it gets nice grill marks.
Assemble. Butter the slice of toasted sourdough bread and put the caramelized onions of top. Add arugula on the top of the onions (gently squeeze the leaves in your hand to help them hold the shape), put the smoked salmon on top, drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, and grate the cheese on top.
Simple, easy and very delicious! Amazing for breakfast but can be done at any time of the day!
