PEAR APPLE CHEDDAR CARAMELIZED ONION GRILLED CHEESE BAGEL SANDWICH

INGREDIENTS
  1. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 1 large yellow onion thinly sliced
  3. 2 heaping handfuls arugula
  4. 2 eggs sunnyside up
  5. 2 everything bagels toasted, I used gluten-free
  6. 4 slices Daiya Cheddar Style Slices
  7. 1/2 ripe apple sliced (I used an Envy apple)
  8. 1/2 ripe bosc pear cored and sliced
  9. 4 tablespoons fig preserves

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the sliced onion and saute, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to sweat and turn translucent, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle liberally with sea salt, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden-brown and caramelized, about 45 minutes more.
  • Preheat the oven to the high broil setting.
  • Slice the bagels in half and place them on a baking sheet. Toast on the top shelf of the oven under the broiler until golden-brown, about 1 minute. Remove bagels from the oven and add a slice of cheddar on all four slices of bagel. Place back in the hot oven until melted, about 1 to 2 minutes.
