By: Megan Mckeehan of @brokegirltable

Servings: 5   |    Prep: 10 mins   |    Cook: 45 mins


1⁄2 lb pearl onions, ​peeled
3 tablespoons butter
1⁄4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice, ​freshly squeezed 4 oz goat cheese, ​softened
2 oz cream cheese, ​softened
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, ​chopped
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, ​chopped Salt and pepper
Fresh baguette
DaVinci Extra Virgin Olive Oil for drizzling


1. Preheat your oven to 350 o​ ​F
2. Prep the onions: ​In a cast-iron skillet (or any oven-safe skillet) on medium-low heat,
melt the butter and then add the brown sugar, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Lightly stir until the sugar melts and begins to bubble and caramelize (about 3 min). Add the onions and gently fold until they are fully covered by the melted butter and sugar. Move the skillet into your preheated oven, and roast for about 40 min or until the onions are a deep caramel color. Gently flip the onions about halfway through the cooking time to ensure even color.
3. Prep the cheese​: While the onions are roasting, mix the goat cheese, cream cheese, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper in a bowl. You can either mix by hand or with an electric mixer for a more whipped texture.
4. Slice the baguette in 3⁄4” slides and place on a baking sheet. Brush each slice with olive oil, then place the pan in the oven during the last 10 minutes of the onions’ bake time. You can also grill the baguette slices or toast them in a toaster oven.
5. Assemble the crostini: ​Allow the onions to cool for a few minutes before assembling - they will be hot! Put together each crostini by spreading the goat cheese, then placing 3-4 onions on each. Top with more fresh herbs, salt, and a drizzle of olive oil.
