1 tbsp butter

1 medium onion, sliced

4 slices turkey bacon

2 tbsp mayonnaise

A few dashes of Tabasco

2 slices sandwich bread

1 whole hard-boiled egg, peeled and sliced

Salt And pepper, to taste

2 slices of Swiss cheese

Additional butter, for grilling


1 Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium-low heat and slowly cook the onions for about 20 minutes, stirring frequently. When they’re deep golden brown and soft, set the pan aside.

2 Fry the bacon in the same frying pan until slightly crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels.

3 Combine the mayonnaise with the Tabasco and stir. Taste and add more Tabasco if required.

4 Sprinkle the sliced eggs generously with salt and pepper.

5 Spread one side of each piece of bread with the spicy mayonnaise.  

6 Layer half the egg, then the bacon, cheese, onions, the other half of the eggs and the second slice of cheese. 

7 Spread one side of the assembled sandwich with softened butter and put it butter-side down on a frying pan over medium-low heat. 

8 Spread the top side with butter, then continue pan grilling the sandwich until the bread is golden and slightly crisp, the filling is warm and the cheese
is melted.

9 Cut in half with a sharp serrated knife and serve.
