Walnut and Caramelized Onion Tea Sandwiches
Recipe Type: Lunch, Sandwich
Author: Rachel Oberg – De Ma Cuisine
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 45 mins
Total time: 1 hour
Serves: 7-9
  • 6 onions, diced
  • 1 C walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 T honey
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 1-2 T olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 12oz. (1 1/2 pkgs.) cream cheese
  • 14-18 slices of white bread
  1. Heat pan, add oil. When oil is hot, add onions, honey, salt, pepper, and sugar.
  2. Cook over medium-low heat for about 45 minutes, or until the liquid has evaporated and the onions are caramelized (brownish, tender, sweet).
  3. Mix with softened cream cheese and walnuts. Add salt and pepper if desired.
  4. Top bread with onion mixture. Top with another slice of bread.
  5. Cut into triangles, quarters, or fingers.

The onions bothered my eyes a lot, because of the quantity. If you can get past that, this is a really yummy sandwich!! One trick I’ve discovered for peeling is to peel them under running water. Helps a little with the crying. 🙂
The filling would also be a good chip or cracker dip. It could be good added to scrambled eggs.
