Baked Goat Cheese with Caramelized Onions and Figs
1/4 cup olive oil
2 large Spanish onions, thinly sliced
10 garlic cloves, crushed
3 rosemary sprigs
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup dry sherry
12 - 16 fresh figs - halved
2 sliced baguettes
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Crumble the goat cheese into an oven safe dish and set aside.
Pour the olive oil into a large skillet and place over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sherry to the pan and cook for a few minutes longer.
Spoon the caramelized onions over the goat cheese and then top with the fig halves, cut side up. Place the dish into the top half of the oven for 20 minutes, until the edges begin to bubble.
Remove and serve immediately with sliced baguettes
