Caramelized Apples and Onions
2-2/3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 qt. yellow onions, julienne cut
1 qt. apples, peeled, julienne cut
1 cup GREY POUPON Country Dijon Mustard

French Toast
16 eggs
2 cups whole milk
1/3 cup ground cinnamon
32 slices sourdough bread, sliced

Sandwich Assembly
32 slices ham
16 slices Swiss cheese

Steps

Caramelized Apples & Onions:
Heat saute pan on medium heat. Add butter; cook until melted. Stir in onions; cook until they start to wilt. Add apples; cook until apples are tender and onions are caramelized, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in mustard.

French Toast:
Whisk eggs, milk and cinnamon until blended. Dip bread in egg mixture, turning to evenly moisten both sides of each slice. Add to skillet; cook until golden brown on both sides, turning once.

We started inviting chefs and FSDs from other districts to come prepare lunch.
