Caramelized Onion Appetizer #MemorableMelts

April 14th, 2014 | Learn How, Recipes, Review

Growing up, onions were an essential in our house; you might even say a staple dish. My Dad can make the meanest onion sandwich you’ve ever tasted, and what’s a piece of steak without a buttery dripping mushroom and onion side! I’ve never lost the love for them, and even find most dishes blah without. So what’s this onion lovin’ lady to do? Make an onion appetizer of course!

Delicious Appetizer #MemorableMelts

Don’t be scared off if all you can think is the pungent smell of raw onions, or the bad breath that usually follows after eating onions, because this caramelized onion appetizer won’t even taste like it comes from that family!  Top this scrumptious treat with new Kraft shredded cheese with a Touch a Philadelphia and this will be an appetizer you won’t forget!

You will need:

  • 3lbs. of onions thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Kraft Creamy Herb & Garlic Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia
  • Baguette- sliced diagonally, lightly toasted and rubbed with a garlic clove

Add butter and oil to the frying pan on medium heat until melted. Add onions and sprinkle with salt. Cook, stirring constantly for 15 mins. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. The onions will reduce to about half of what you started with.

Add a spoonful to each baguette slice and top with Kraft Creamy Herb & Garlic Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia.  If the onions are already hot; place in the oven under a low broiler for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. If the onions have been refrigerated place in a 350 deg oven for 15 mins, then add the cheese and heat for an additional 5 minutes.

Perfect melted cheese #MemorableMelts

This new cheese variety from Kraft is specially blended with Philly to give an even softer creamier shredded cheese. The herb and garlic flavor complements the caramelized onions perfect, and makes this a dish you’ll want to add to every party menu.  However, if you’re cooking up another dish it also comes in Creamy Mozza, and Creamy Mexicana too. This cheese is so creamy it makes a melt you’re sure to remember, the one step process to get both cheeses is perfect, and creates such a smooth melt.
