Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Crostini

I’m making this delicious appetizer for our reunion with Zac’s family Monday night.  It’s pretty easy to make and so very fabulous!  It’s easy to eat while chatting with family or chasing after the kiddos! 

Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Crostini

2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
2 medium sweet onions, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
24 slices (1/4-inch thick) French bread baguette
Nonstick cooking spray
1 package (4 oz) chèvre (goat) cheese, softened
1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or oregano leaves

1.In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in onions; cook uncovered 10 minutes, stirring every 3 to 4 minutes.
2.Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in salt, brown sugar, and vinegar. Cook 30 to 35 minutes longer, stirring every 5 minutes, until onions are deep golden brown (onions will shrink during cooking). Cool slightly.
3.Heat oven to 325°F. Place bread slices on ungreased cookie sheet; spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Bake 6 to 9 minutes or until crispy.
4.Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine goat cheese and cream cheese; blending until smooth; set aside.
5.Place 1 teaspoon caramelized onions onto each bread slice; top with 1 rounded teaspoon cheese mixture. Sprinkle with herbs.
