Carmelized Onion & Rosemary Bruschetta

Prep Time

Ready In

"Economical, flavour loaded appetizer. It's "Do Ahead" right up to the assembly & final bake.. You may have everything ready a day ahead! I use my mini chopper to do the onions, celery and also to chop the fresh rosemary. I used shredded Italian 4 cheese and it was great. Buttering the bottom of the baguette slices makes a lovely toasty crisp to them"

First off I caramelized the bits of onion and added in garlic with the onion. It gave the Bruschetta a great flavor! I used a mix of Mozzarella and Parmesan to make sure the cheese would melt. We loved it as an appetizer for Easter!

Made for the FF&F What’s on the Menu? Tag Game – I actually made 2 versions of your recipe because DH is diet-restricted from cheese (something I cannot imagine accepting). I also used a mixture of breads. I used sml baguette roll slices for his & a sliced bakery roll for mine w/cheese. I also added garlic (a must for me). The cheese product behaved a bit strange. It was a shredded blend of mozzarella & I’m not sure what else. Some of the smaller bits were more crunchy than melted. BUT that certainly didn’t hurt the lovely sweet flavor of the caramelized onion & garlic. YUM! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us, Bergy. :-)
