My daughter Rani loves caramelized onions and tries to incorporate them in any dish she creates. She also loves garlic and as she informed me lately she prefers them cut into thick slivers so we get a garlicy slice in every bite. With these thoughts in mind she created this appetizer style cheesy baguette with caramelized onions and garlic. With buttery caramelized onions and sweet garlic all piled on top of tangy white cheddar and Parmesan cheese, then baked until golden, seriously how can anyone not like these baguette slices? These toasted baguettes are so good folks that our family had to hold ourselves back from finishing the entire loaf!
Serve these along with soup like Rani did and you have the makings of a delicious Sunday soup day that is not just any ordinary dinner.
