Ingredients Needed for Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Toast

Baguette – For this recipe, I used a 12-inch French baguette. I sliced it in half at the center, and then sliced the halves length wise to end up with four, 6-inch half loaves. You can also slice the bread into smaller ovals for an easy appetizer.

Olive Oil – You will need to dress the center of the baguette with olive oil and pan fry it on both sides. This allows the bread to get crispy on the outside and remain soft in the center. You will also need some olive oil for the caramelized onions.

Red Onion – For this recipe you, will need to peel and remove the roots from a large red onion. Slice the onion into ½-inch thick slices. I added a touch of salt and red wine to my onions to prevent them from drying out in the pan. You can also add a touch of butter. Details below.

Sheep / Goat Cheese – For the ultimate toast, be sure to use Meredith Dairy’s sheep goat cheese. I have linked it HERE. It can be found under “Healthyish Favorites” on my Amazon storefront. This cheese is soft, luxurious and has the most delicious taste. Perfect for the holidays or for any day really.

Seasoning / Herbs – Be sure to finish this recipe with a touch of fresh thyme and cracked black pepper. You can even add a drizzle of honey for an extra punch of flavor.
