Molly O’s Cheesy Onion Bread

I don’t think I can capture the delight in words. This bread is so wonderfully delicious. It almost reminds me of a deconstructed French Onion Soup, and would be amazing dipped in au jus. The caramelized onions and Asiago add so much flavor, and the crusty bread gives so much texture… It’s a perfect bite.

As organic as possible:

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 large Yellow onion, finely chopped

1 cup Mayonnaise

1/2 cup Asiago

1/2 cup Parmesan

1/4 tsp Black pepper

1/4 tsp granulated Garlic (or powder)

1/4 tsp granulated Onion (or powder)

1 French baguette

Preheat the oven to 350º. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat (Side note: I also added a pat of butter because I like to caramelize my onions like that). Caramelize onions, stirring frequently so they don’t burn, looking for amber color. Add granulated garlic and onion, pepper and a pinch of salt. Remove from heat and let cool. In a bowl, mix mayo, cheeses and caramelized onions. Cut the baguette in slices on the diag. Spread mix on each slice. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Sing.

BTW, Molly is a very good friend of mine and I can’t wait to share her cakes!


      1. Again being in the right place at the right time… It is (was) really good. It would be a great appetizer for a trendy gastro pub.

    1. Thank you Mea! I do like to make “garlic toasts” on a baguette so it is similar in that way. It’s got so much flavor that I don’t think I would serve it with pasta though… maybe with a broth-y soup or with a steak? I served it as an appetizer:)

  1. I have been seeing ads at pizza places for “parmesan bites,” Sadie. So absolutely ecstatic to get this recipe. Thank you, they sound delicious! Smiles, Robin I am a friend in the blogging world of Lyn’s. 🙂
