Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Garlic Crostini

Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Garlic Toasts
an original recipe by Natalie

  • 1 French baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • olive oil
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced in half lengthwise
  • 2 large sweet onions, sliced thinly (don't be afraid, they'll cook down a LOT!)
  • 3 T butter
  • 4-5 oz goat cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Melt butter in a large dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat. Add onions, stir to coat, then cover and cook for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. Uncover, bump the heat up a bit and stir until onions are golden brown and caramelized.

While onions are cooking, arrange baguette slices on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Bake in preheated oven for 5-8 minutes or until bread begins to turn slightly brown. Remove from oven and immediately rub the toasts with garlic clove halves. Add a couple tablespoons of caramelized onion and some crumbles of goat cheese to each toast. Return to oven and bake for 2-3 more minutes or until everything is heated through and the cheese begins to melt.

Makes 15-20 appetizers, depending on how thick you slice your bread.
