Crostini prepTreat your holiday guests to elegant hors d’oeuvres that are deceptively easy to prepare. Crisp, lightly browned baguette slices topped with caramelized onion jam are the base for this deceptively simple-to-prepare appetizer. The sweetness of the onion jam pairs beautifully with Gorgonzola and fresh figs.

The onion jam can be prepared ahead of time. It would be wonderful atop a pan-seared pork cutlet or roasted chicken sandwich.

Ingredients
Onion Jam
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large red onions thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup medium bodied red wine (such as Pinot Noir)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Crostini
  • 1 baguette cut on the bias into 1/4 inch slices (about 30)
  • 1/4 pound gorgonzola (or other mild blue cheese such as Danish blue)
  • 4 fresh figs thinly sliced (dried figs can also be used if fresh are not available)
Instructions
Onion Jam
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, sugar, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook until onions are soft and caramelized, about 30 minutes. Add the wine and vinegar and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 15 minutes.
Crostini
  • Arrange half of the baguette slices on oven rack and set oven to TOAST/LIGHT, 6 slices, for 4 minutes. Remove baguette slices from oven and set on baking rack in Wolf Gourmet baking pan. Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese on each slice. Place pan in oven on middle rack, set oven to BROIL/LO and cook for 3 minutes. Remove pan from oven and top each crostini with 1 tablespoon onion jam and 1 fig slice. Repeat with second batch of baguette slices. Serve warm.

    This fig, gorganzola crostini with onion jam looks delicious, where’s the recipe. FYI: I just renovated my kitchen with all subzero and wolf products including induction cooktop, convection and steam M series ovens – and I love them!

    Thanks
