Recipe: Carmalized Onion Toast

This is based off a Tapas plate we get at Sangria in Sarasota. We have recently discovered it, and it is super yum.

Ingredients:
1 sweet onion
Olive oil
Balsamic glaze (optional)
Goat cheese
French bread of some sort, sliced into 6 pieces, about 1/2 inch thick.

Directions:
In a large pan, drizzle 2 tbs olive oil and heat to medium.

Meanwhile, slice up onion into slices. Doesn’t have to be fancy. In fact, you could do a rough chop, too, as they cook down to very little.

Add onion to pan, and stir. Continue to stir periodically, taking care not to but the onions. Heat at medium is good, though I continued to lower the heat. Keep watching and stirring occasionally until onions get all brown and gooey.

I then added a dash of salt and a splash of balsamic glaze… This is optional.

Heat oven to 350, and quickly crisp the sliced bread. Let cool.

Once the bread is cool, layer on some goat cheese, and then top with onions.

The sweet onions with the tang of balsamic and the creamy goat cheese make for a wonderful few bites! A great little appetizer to start off an evening.
