Elliot Spenser's Unforgetable Sandwich! (Leverage Tv Show)

READY IN: 40mins




  • Caramelize the onion in Ghee or Olive oil (about 30 minutes).
  • Remove some of the dough from inside both sides of the bagel (optional).
  • Toast the Bagels.
  • Mix the cream cheese, chives, and minced garlic together.
  • Spread cream cheese mixture on both sides of toasted Bagel.
  • Place many layers of Sliced Turkey on top (1/4 lb total on each).
  • Place Sliced Havarti on top of turkey (or, you can use cheddar!).
  • Place Sliced Tomato on top of Cheese.
  • Top with caramelized onions.
  • Place Bagel top on top.
  • Wrap in Foil and place in pre-heated oven (400 degrees) for about 8-10 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • UPDATE: I now use Boneless Chicken Breasts marinated in Balsamic Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Fry in cast iron skillet (3-4 min/side) sprinkle with Garlic powder and S&P. Remove from pan and slice breasts into 1/2ish inch slices. Return to pan and fry until inside is not pink, but it is still juicy. Add cheese slices to a grouping of slices and let melt. I "toast" the bagels in a flat skillet on the stove-top, brushing each side with EVOO first- then stack everything on them and serve. Everything is already hot, so the cheese melts. WAY BETTER!
