Ingredients

  • Serves about 30 crostini

  • For the red onion jam:

  • 2

    medium red onions, thinly sliced

  • 2

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1/4

    cup sugar

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/3

    cup red wine

  • 1

    tablespoon sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar

  • For the crostini:

  • 1

    baguette

  • 1

    log fresh goat cheese

  • 30-40

    small basil leaves, rinsed and dried

Directions

To make the jam, cook the onions, butter, sugar, salt and pepper in a covered saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and slightly caramelized, about 30 minutes. Add the wine and vinegar and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature before using. The jam may be prepared as much as two weeks in advance and refrigerated. (Makes about 2 cups jam.) Preheat the oven to 450°F. Slice the baguette thinly on the diagonal and arrange on a baking sheet. Cut the goat cheese into 1/4-inch slices (unwaxed dental floss works well for this) and top each baguette slice with a basil leaf, followed by a slice of cheese. Bake the crostini for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese starts to brown lightly. Top each toast with a small dollop of red onion jam and serve warm.
