READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Laureen in B.C.

This recipe comes from Bon Appetit. Sweet caramelized onions and pungent blue cheese make a good pair in the simply but elegant appetizer. I have served this many times and everyone loves it.

What a way to start dinner! Since my BF doesn't care for blue cheese, I subbed in a combo of gruyere and emmenthal - reminded me of french onion soup! Made for PAC Spring '11
