Ok, I'm hungry now... Courtesy Rachael Ray's "30 Minute Meals". For the version in the photo, I added about a teaspoon of paprika to the mix to give it that rich color.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a small pan over moderate heat. Add onions and garlic and season with sugar, thyme and pepper. Cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden in color and translucent.
  2. Place the split bread on a baking sheet and broil until golden.
  3. Spread half the onions and garlic on each half of bread in a thin layer. Sprinkle each side of loaf with half the cheese and return to broiler for approximately 30 seconds to bubble cheese.
  4. Serve with a hearty soup.

Yum! Could not help adding 1 tbs of balsamico to the onions as they where caramelizing. Relatively light weight and healthy recipe.

I really loved the rich flavor the onion added to this dish. I also served this with spaghetti and it was promptly inhaled. I have a feeling this will be served often here. Thanks for sharing this little delight.

Easy and simple to prepare, yet delicious. I came across this recipe while I was heating up some leftover spaghetti sauce and boiling some spaghetti. I had a loaf of French bread, so I decided to give it a try. I followed the directions, except I only used 1/2 small onion, as that was all I had on hand. This Onion & Garlic Bread really jazzed up my dinner. I will make this again. Thanks Sandi!
