Now this has to be the King of all baguettes, it is definitely one that Joey would be proud of! Whenever I think of sandwich loving I can’t help but think about Friend (the TV show that is). I don’t think anyone could have been as obsessed with sandwiches as Joey; well I have to say if you tried this you might be. I would definitely have a very hard job sharing this, infact I think I may even fight for it; and just like Joey would probably choose to save it over most my friends (that is actually an exaggeration my friends are obviously more important to me that a sandwich.) So I think you get my point, if you have any leftover beef from your Sunday roast then make this, otherwise you are mega missing out!!
For the Caramelised Onions
– 2 red onions – thinly sliced
– 20g butter
– ½ tbsp. olive oil
– 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
For the Mayonnaise
– 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
– 1 heap tsp wholegrain mustard
– Juice of half a lemon
– Freshly ground black pepper
– 2 baguettes (see yesterday’s recipe for homemade baguettes)
– Roast beef – thinly sliced
– ½ courgette – sliced with a veg peeler
– ½ carrot – peeled and sliced with a veg peeler
– Grated Mature Cheddar Cheese
Make the caramelised onions by gently frying them in the butter and the oil for 2-3 minutes until they just start to give.
Add the balsamic vinegar and sugar and leave on a medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes until soft and sticky
Meanwhile, mix all the ingredients for your mayo together until well combined
Warm the baguettes and layer them first with the mayo, then the veg and lay the beef on top. Once cooked, spread the onions over the beef and then top with the cheese. The heat from the hot onions and the warm baguette should melt the cheese, delish! Good luck eating this, it’s a messy one!
