2 finger rolls or a french bread loaf
4 oz goat cheese
1 large yellow onion
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons basil infused olive oil
1 tablespoon milk
Pinch Italian parsley
Pinch sea salt
Pinch crushed black pepper
Cut yellow onion in half and peel off outer skin. Place half of the onion into a garlic baker. Drizzle 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil over the top of the yellow onion. Add a pinch of sea salt and a pinch of crushed black pepper. Place garlic baker in the oven at 350 °F for 60 minutes. Check after 30 minutes and stir onion to reduce the edges from burning.
Cut the finger rolls into thin slices and brush with basil infused olive oil. Bake in the oven at 350 °F for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
Place 4 oz of goat cheese into a small mixing bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of milk and mix until the goat cheese has a creamy and smooth texture.
To prepare the appetizers, spoon out quarter-sized portions of the goat cheese mixture onto the toast points. Add a small piece of the caramelized sweet yellow onions on top of the goat cheese. Dust with fresh Italian parsley.
