  • Makes
    3-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 2 whole garlic bulbs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 large red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 French bread baguette (10-1/2 ounces), cut into scant 1/2-in. slices
  • 1 pound Brie cheese, rind removed, thinly sliced
  • Minced fresh thyme, optional

Directions

  • Remove papery outer skin from garlic (do not peel or separate cloves). Cut tops off of garlic bulbs. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil. Wrap each bulb in heavy-duty foil. Bake at 425° for 30-35 minutes or until softened. Cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, cook and stir the onion, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper in remaining oil for 15-20 minutes or until very tender and browned.
  • Place bread on ungreased baking sheets. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 3-4 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Squeeze softened garlic into a small bowl; mash with a fork. Spread over toast. Top with cheese and onion. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with thyme if desired.
