1
medium sweet onion, thinly sliced
Cooking spray
2
teaspoons salt-free onion-herb blend
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
1
cup reduced-sodium beef broth
8
oz thinly sliced cooked reduced-sodium roast beef (from deli)
4
hoagie buns (2.5 oz each), split
4
slices (3/4 oz each) reduced-fat Swiss cheese, cut in half
  1. Heat oven to 500°F. Heat 12-inch skillet over high heat. Spray onion with cooking spray; add to skillet. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of the herb blend. Cook 11 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently and adding water 2 tablespoons at a time, until onion is golden brown.

  3. Place buns, cut sides up, on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 4 minutes or until lightly toasted.
