Appetizer idea: Caramelized Onion & Apple Bruschetta

This sweet and
savory appetizer is perfect for chilly fall evenings and is delicious served
with a glass of Merlot.

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 medium
    onions, sliced
  • 3 tablespoon
    olive oil, divided
  • scant ¼ cup
    apple brandy
  • Lunds &
    Byerlys baguette
  • 1-2 Honeycrisp
    or Haralson apples, thinly sliced
  • shredded Gruyère

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375 F.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a medium skillet and heat over medium-low. Add onions and let them caramelize, about 30-45 minutes, stirring frequently. 
  3. Add apple brandy and cook until evaporated. 
  4. Brush slices of L&B baguette with remaining olive oil and bake for 3-5 minutes, until slightly browned. 
  5. Remove from oven and top with onions, apple slices and shredded Gruyère. (Provolone and Brie also work well.) 
  6. Return to oven and broil until cheese starts to melt, 2-4 minutes.
