This is really a quick recipe to put together, the bulk of the time is allowing the onions to soften slowly.

How to Make Roast Beef and Whiskey Onion Flatbread Sandwiches


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and mustard; set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and the butter in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add in the onion, salt and pepper and cook until softened and lightly browned, approximately 15 - 20 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the whiskey, mix to combine and until absorbed. Transfer to a small, heat-proof bowl; set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, over medium heat, add in the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add in the roast beef and garlic, and cook until heated through and the beef just begins to brown, approximately 2 - 3 minutes; set aside.
  5. Place the flatbreads onto prepared baking sheet; evenly spread the mayonnaise mixture onto the flatbreads. Evenly divide the roast beef between the flatbreads, only covering 1/2 of each flatbread; top roast beef evenly with the reserved onions. Top entire flatbread evenly with the cheese. Place into preheated oven and bake until cheese has melted, approximately 3 - 4 minutes. Fold the cheese-only half of the flatbread over the roast beef half. Secure with toothpicks and enjoy!!
