Caramelized Onion and Cheese Canapes

I’ve made this appetizer for years. It is a favorite of my friend Kelly. We recently had family and friends visiting to celebrate my Moms 80th birthday and I served this because it’s easy and delicious. The goat cheese offers a bit of a bite while the caramelized onions pop with flavor from balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Do a bit of prep work in advance by slicing the loaf of French bread ahead of time. Keep it in a zip lock bag. Don’t do this too early though, a day at the most.

Caramelized Onion and Cheese Canapes

2 large red onions, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 loaf thin French bread, sliced 1/4 inch thick into 24 slices

12 ounces goat cheese

In a medium skillet over medium heat, saute onions in the olive oil for 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown. Add the brown sugar. Saute for 3 minutes. Add the vinegar and saute 1 minute longer.

Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet. Toast lightly in the oven. Spread the cheese on the bread and top each with some of the onion mixture.

Serves: 8
