2 very thin slices red onion or caramelized onions*
4 to 6 fresh spinach leaves, washed and patted dry
1 (1-ounce) slice Wisconsin Dill Havarti Cheese
1 teaspoon butter, melted
- Spread bread slices with mustard. Layer Gouda, ham, onion, spinach and Wisconsin Dill Havarti between bread.

- Spread top and bottom of sandwich lightly with butter; place sandwich in skillet and cook about 3 minutes per side until bread crisps slightly and cheese begins to melt.

*For caramelized onions, cut a small onion in half and slice thinly. Melt 1/2 teaspoon butter in a skillet. Add onion slices, a pinch each of salt and sugar; cook and stir over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until the onion begins to brown. Add 1 tablespoon water and continue cooking on medium-low heat 10 to 15 minutes or until the onion is a deep golden brown.
