Clean the mushrooms and cut into thin slices. Peel the garlic, remove the germ and chop finely. 


Pour a drizzle of olive oil and a knob of butter into a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook for a few minutes. Set aside. 


Prepare the onion confit: peel and finely chop the onions. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions and cook over a low heat for around twenty minutes. After 10 minutes, add the balsamic vinegar, sugar and half a glass of water. Leave the onions to melt until you achieve the desired texture, again over a low heat.  


Pour some oil into a frying pan and heat over a medium heat. Place 4 slices of country-style bread on top and brown on both sides.  


On two slices, place a few slices of the Mimolette and Comté cheeses, a large spoonful of onion confit and the mushrooms.  

Close the pan and heat again until the cheese has melted. You can also place the sandwich in the oven for a few minutes if you find the cheese is not melting.
