Goat Cheese Sandwiches with Roasted Peppers & Onion Jam

Why not double the onion jam to use for sandwiches and burgers throughout the week?

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 35 min.


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon currants
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 16- to 20-inch-long baguette
  • 4 ounces creamy goat cheese, preferably reduced-fat
  • 2 tablespoon olivada, (black olive spread)
  • 1 7-ounce ja roasted red peppers, drained and sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups arugula leaves

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a heavy nonstick skillet over low heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until they are very tender and light golden, 15 to 20 minutes. (Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if they are browning too quickly.) Remove from the heat and stir in vinegar, currants, salt and pepper. Let cool.

Step 2

Slice the baguette into 4 equal lengths. Split each piece horizontally. Spread the bottoms with goat cheese and the tops with olivada. Spoon the onion jam over the goat cheese, spreading evenly. Top with the roasted peppers and arugula. Set the bread tops on the sandwiches.
