Caramelized Onion and Smoked Cheese Squares

I'm having a blast going through my old handwritten notebooks filled with recipes. I'm ultimately looking for an old tofu nugget recipe I would make that tasted just like fishsticks, but in the mean time I'm finding so many delicious recipes that I haven't made in a long time! (That's what you get when you have about 900,000 recipes... LOL).

This one is a great appetizer, just in time for the holidays!

Caramelized Onion and Smoked Cheese Squares

2 medium onions, thin sliced
1 T butter
1 T olive oil
1 T brown sugar
1 T balsamic vinegar
1/4 slivered almonds
1/2 c shredded mozzarella
1/2 c shredded Gouda cheese
1/2 c shredded smoked cheddar
1 pizza crust, baked or a store bought Boboli crust

Preheat oven to 450. In skillet cook onion in butter and oil over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the sugar, vinegar and dates. Cook and stir 5 minutes more until heated through and the onions are golden brown. Remove from heat. Stir in almonds. Sprinkle the cheeses over the pizza/bread crust. Top with the onion mixture. Place the bread/pizza crust on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes then cut into squares.Print Friendly and PDF
