I’m gonna admit that it was taking me every ounce of my willpower not to write about Kim Kardashian today. (I obviously failed miserably) And you know what makes me maddest? That I EVEN KNOW WHO SHE IS. The fact that I heard they were getting a divorce and thought “wait, didn’t she just get married?” infuriates me. Why do I know this?? I don’t even read Perez Hilton! Okay…my nose might have grown just a bit there, but I definitely do not read it enough that I should be aware of wedding dates from people whose claim to fame is that they’re famous. Uggh. Ugh.
You know what I do NOT know? The names of the senators for California. These are sad, sad facts people.
Another sad fact is that I’m apparently in the midst of a food rut, since I seem to be stuck on either A) Making crostini with anything I find in my kitchen or B) Putting caramelized onions on everything I can. It was only a matter of time before this creation had to happen.
Since I am making a resolution to free up more of my brain for important things, this recipe is perfect since it’s so easy there’s no need to memorize the steps and I can eat it as a snack while I sit on the couch watching
Real Housewives C-Span. Thank you for not judging me.
Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Crostini
I normally make caramelized onions with any onion I have on hand, but for this particular recipe I highly recommend using a sweet onion since it helps to contrast the sharp blue cheese.
Makes approx. 10 crostini
1 large sweet onion sliced or chopped (personal preference)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1 baguette, sliced and toasted
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
In a large saute pan heat the olive oil on medium-low heat. Add the onions and sprinkle with a dash of salt. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until they have softened and then add the thyme leaves. Cook the onions, stirring often, for another 20-25 minutes or until they have turned brown. Remove from heat.
Spoon the onions over the toasted bread and top with blue cheese crumbles.
