Ingredients

2
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
2
medium sweet onions, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
2
teaspoons garlic, finely chopped
1
teaspoon kosher (coarse) salt
2
tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/4
cup red wine vinegar
1/2
cup chicken or vegetable broth
24
slices (1/4 inch thick) baguette French bread
Cooking spray
1/4
cup cream cheese or chèvre (goat) cheese, softened (2 oz)
1
teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or oregano leaves

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Stir in onions and garlic; cook uncovered 10 minutes, stirring every 3 to 4 minutes.
  • 2 Add salt, brown sugar, vinegar and broth. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 30 minutes.
  • 3 Remove cover, increase heat to medium-high. Cook 2 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid is reduced and the mixture is the consistency of jam. Remove from heat; set aside.
