Caramelized Onion Bruschetta

12 servings


  1. 2 Tablespoons butter
  2. 1 large onion, sliced
  3. 1 sprig fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  4. 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  5. Salt, to taste
  6. 12 slices French bread
  7. 2 cloves garlic
  8. 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  9. 6 to 12 Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
  10. Freshly ground black pepper

Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, thyme and a little salt and pepper. Cook until the onions begin to get soft, about 15 minutes.

Turn the heat up a little, add the brown sugar, and cook until the onions turn golden brown; another 5 to 10 minutes. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.

Toast the bread on both sides in a toaster oven, under the broiler or on the grill.

While the toasted slices are still warm, rub the top side with garlic and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.

Place a dollop of the caramelized onions on each slice of Bruschetta and top with 1 to 2 of the halved olives.
