3. Add the sweet potato slices to the bowl and toss well to coat.

4. Spread the coated sweet potato slices on a large rimmed baking sheet.

5. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

6. Meanwhile, toss the sliced red onion in the bowl with the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons of oil until evenly coated.

7. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and evenly arrange the onion on top.

8. Bake for an additional 8 to 10 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are easily pierced with a fork and the onion is softened.



Remove from the oven and drizzle with vinegar.

11. Place the bread slices, mayonnaise-side down, on a work surface.

16. Cook 2 sandwiches at a time until toasted on both sides and the cheese is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.


17. Repeat with the remaining 2 sandwiches.

18. Cut the sandwiches in half crosswise and serve warm.
