Lamb Sandwiches with Caramelized Onions and Cheese

Make in any amount

This recipe for lamb sandwiches was created as a way to use leftovers from a leg of lamb roast, which is in the similar and related recipes. It is a simple preparation that takes very little time to do. The sandwich is delicious with the caramelized onions and cheese, similar to a grilled steak sandwich, and is equally good with leftover beef.


Heat enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden, about 20 minutes. Remove from the skillet. Increase heat to medium-high and add a little more oil to the pan if dry. Add the lamb and sauté just until heated through, about 1 minute per side. Remove the pan from the burner, add the onions and keep warm.

Meanwhile, lightly butter the cut sides of the rolls. Place, cut side up, under a broiler until toasted. Place lamb on the bottom halves and top with cheese. Return to the broiler until the cheese melts. Top with the onions. If desired, spread the cut side of the tops of the rolls with condiment of choice and close the sandwiches. Serve immediately.
