  1. Directions Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium. Add onion and sugar and sauté for 10 minutes, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium low and add balsamic vinegar. Sauté 2 minutes more, remove from heat and set aside. Preheat Panini press on high. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread and place butter side down.
