Author's Notes

Mix the chopped garlic into slightly warm butter. This cooks the garlic slightly and takes out the sharp garlic bite. When you butter the outside of the bread, don’t include the garlic bits. They will burn during the cooking process. It will still have the garlic flavour, since the butter should have the garlic infused into it.

Step 1
Caramelize Onions (2) in a pan wit with oil and some butter over medium heat and put it aside to cool.
Step 2
Soften the Butter (1/4 cup) in the microwave on low for 20 seconds until it is spreadable and warm to the touch.
Step 3
Add the Garlic (2 cloves) into the warm butter and mix it together. Put it aside.
Step 4
Preheat a pan to medium heat.
Step 5
Spread the butter on the outsides of the Ciabatta Bread (2) avoiding putting the garlic bits on.
Step 6
Spread the butter on the insides of the bun.
Step 7
Sprinkle on Smoked Cheddar Cheese (2 cups) on the first layer.
Step 8
Lay out the Ham Slices (2 slices) in a single layer on the second layer.
Step 9
Add the caramelized onions on the third layer.
Step 10
Sprinkle on cheese for the fourth layer.
Step 11
Drizzle Maple Syrup (2 Tbsp) over the cheese.
Step 12
Add the bread as the last layer and set it in the pan to crisp up.
Step 13
Toast the sandwich for approximately 2 minutes a side. Make sure to check it on the 1 minute mark to make sure its not burning. If it looks brown and crisp, flip it over to the other side.
Step 14
Enjoy while cheese is gooey and the sandwich is warm.
