But Sugar is Sweeter

Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Treats

I wasn’t going to put this on the blog, because it is so simple it doesn’t seem “blog worthy”, but after serving it before Med Ball, everyone really seemed to enjoy it!  I happened to have all 3 of the main ingredients around the house, so this was a last minute throw together appetizer.

Thanks to my awesome Grandma Josie, who bought a bunch of the these mini filo dough cups for me. If you know my Grandma at all, you know that buying just one of anything would be like one of the seven deadly sins!  So needless to say I have quite a few of these little filo cups in my cupboard and they sure do come in handy.

Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Appetizers

1 sweet onion, thinly sliced

1 8 oz package herbed goat cheese

2 packages Filo Dough Mini Shells (about 30)

Sprinkling of Sugar

Olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Add a small amount of olive oil to a medium frying pan and heat over medium heat.  Add the thinly sliced onion to the pan and top with a sprinkling of sugar (to help the onion caramelize).  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the onion caramelizes (about 1o minutes).  In the meantime place the filo dough cups on a baking sheet and fill each with an equal amount of herbed goat cheese (about a teaspoon).  Bake the cheese filled filo cups for 15 minutes in the oven in order to warm the cheese.  Remove from oven, and top each with a few slices of caramelized onion and serve hot.
