Instructions

To make the caramelized onions, combine the onions and olive oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Cook until onions are softened and beginning to caramelize, approximately 15 minutes. Stir in the balsamic vinegar and cook for an additional five minutes. Remove from heat. To assemble the Panini, butter each side of the ciabatta bread. On 1/2 of the bread, spread to the fig jam. Layer slices of Muenster cheese, prosciutto, arugula, and caramelized onions. Place the other half of the ciabatta bread on top. Place sandwich on the Cuisinart Griddler on medium heat using the panini setting. Grill until golden brown, or 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cut into quarters. Served with a side salad or roasted tomato soup. Enjoy!
