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.
