Ingredients

  • 24

    diagonal 1/4"-thk slices cut from a long

  • thin loaf Italian or French bread

  • 1/2

    cup olive oil plus

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 3/4

    teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper

  • 4

    cups thinly-sliced red onions

  • 4

    tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 1/2

    cup soft cheese (such as blue or goat)

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh snipped chives

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush bread with 1/4 cup of the olive oil and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake until golden, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and tender, about 8 minutes. Add vinegar and cook until it evaporates, about 30 seconds. Season with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Cool to room temperature. Divide onions evenly among crostini and top each with about 1 teaspoon crumbled cheese. Garnish each crostini with 1/4 teaspoon of chives and serve immediately at room temperature. This recipe yields 24 crostini.
