  • 4 T Butter
  • 1 Bundle Fresh Basil
  • 4 T Onion Jam
  • 4 Slices Heirloom Tomatoes
  • 2 C Gruyere Cheese, grated
  • 2 C Swiss Cheese, grated
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  1. OVEN: Preheat oven to 400°F. Place Alexia Crispy Onion Rings on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 15-18 minutes, flipping halfway through to ensure maximum crispiness.
  2. AIR FRYER: Preheat air fryer to 360°F. Fill basket with half the frozen onion rings. Cook 12-14 minutes. Slide out basket halfway through cooking time and shake.
  3. Shred cheese and slice tomatoes. Set aside.
  4. Heat a skillet on low and lather on room temperature butter on the outside of the bread and place down in the skillet.
  5. Add on sandwich filling: onion jam, tomatoes, shredded cheeses and onion rings. Spread butter on the other half of the bread and place atop the open-faced sandwich with buttered side facing up.
  6. Press down to toast the bottom and flip carefully. Toast the other side and let the cheese melt throughout. Remove and slice. Repeat 4 times to make 4 sandwiches.
