This is a wonderfully flavorful and tasty appetizer, snack or light meal. It is very simple, yet really delicious. Sweet caramelized onions, butter, anchovies, cheese: the combination is superb.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus 4 tablespoons, softened, for brushing the bread
  • 3 onions, sliced
    cheese and onion bread
  • 3 to 4 anchovy halves, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 baguette
  • 1/3 cup pitted Nicoise olives
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano

Method:

Start with sauteing the onions in the butter until golden brown. Add the anchovies, thyme, salt and pepper.

Cut the baguette lengh twise and brush the sides with the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter.

When the onions are cooked, divide them on top of the bread halves. Top with olives and drizzle with some olive oil.

Bake the bread in a 400 F degree oven for about 15 minutes. Once the bread is out of the oven, apply a generous amount of Parmesan cheese and cut in small pieces. Serve immediately.
