Ham and Mozzarella Sandwich with Caramelized Onions and Pineapple Glaze, and Onion Rings

Longest blog title ever! It is exactly as I said, plus curly leaf lettuce. It was just a simple matter of cooking a small quantity of onion rings in olive oil over low heat till they are homogenously dark amber or brown. Then, place the (apologetically boring) white bread with some shredded mozzarella on one on the oven toaster till they get nice grill marks on the bottom. Add some brown sugar to a single serving of pineapple juice with a pinch of cornstarch and simmer until reduced and very thick. And then you have a ham sandwich that no one can accuse of being boring. (Onion Rings instructions follows)

The onion rings are some of the best I've ever tasted, and are very easy to make. Just mix together 1/3 cup of milk, 1 egg, and a pinch of salt and black pepper. Slice 2 large white onions into rings and soak for 30 minutes in the egg mixture. Break open some pancake mix (I used Maya) and pour about 100g onto a plate. Dip each onion ring into the breading (you don't have to worry too much about excess breading) and deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Load the onion rings into a loaf pan, forming a very loosely packed loaf, and bake in a preheated 205°C (400°F) oven for 10-15 minutes. I ate mine with barbecue sauce. YUM!
