Caramelized Onion Crostini

This is one of my original recipes. It’s sweet, it’s tangy, it’s crunchy and delicious. It’s also easy and will be a crowd pleaser. Just double or triple the recipe for more people. Enjoy!
2 med. yellow onions, cut in half and thinly sliced
1 tbsp butter
Drizzle of olive oil
Half of a Baguette (French, ciabatta, home made onion bread)
1/4 cup finely grated Goat-Gouda Cheese (Mozzarella with work too)
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup peach preserves (or apricot jam)
  1. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan over med heat. Break up the onions and add to the pan. Stir the onions until they are covered in the butter. Turn heat to low-med and put a lid on the pan and leave alone for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir, and leave another 10 minutes. Add the thyme and vinegar, stir and cook another minute. Remove from heat.
  2. Prepare the bread; slice to 1/4 inch thick, brush with olive oil both sides, and toast under the broiler until both sides are nice a toasty.
  3. Evenly distribute the preserves onto each crostini, add the onions and cheese. 
  4. Broil until the cheese melts and everything is hot again.
Serves 2 hungry people.
