Ingredients: 1/2 cup mayonnaise or whipped cream cheese 1 large onion, thinly sliced 6-8 small arugula leaves, washed and patted dry 2 large eggs, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup bread crumbs, unflavored, toasted 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons olive oil Preparation: Slice each tomato to obtain 1-1/2 inch thick slices from the widest portion of the tomato, making sure to avoid the core. Spread 1 heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise on one-half of the tomato slices. Top each with an onion slice, arugula leaf, and a second slice of tomato. Dip each sandwich into the beaten egg mixture and then the breadcrumbs. Gently shake off any excess bread crumbs. Set sandwiches aside. In a large heavy saute pan, warm the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Slip each sandwich into the pan and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove and serve immediately.
