Directions:
1. In a deep skillet, melt 1 tbsp. of the butter in the oil. Add onion, cover and cook
over high heat, stirring once or twice until softened about 5 minutes. Uncover and
cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is very tender and

down, on a work surface. Spread a thin layer of the raspberry preserves on each
slice. Top half of the sliced with the onion, Gruyere cheese and chopped pecans
dividing evenly, and close the sandwiches.

3. Preheat a skillet. Grill the sandwiches, butter side down over low heat until the
bread is toasted, and cheese melted, 5 minutes. press the sandwich with a spatula
and flip them halfway through, cook another 5 minutes.

4. Cut in half and serve immediately.
