Onion Confit with Croutons


Onion Confit with Croutons with red onions flavored with healthful herbs, red wine, vinegar and seasonings.


1 French sourdough baguette
6 cups thinly sliced red onions
2 teaspoons freshly minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 cup medium dry red wine
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. To prepare the croutons, thinly slice the baguette into rounds of a uniform thickness (1/4 to 1/3-inch thick). Lay them on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until they are completely dried.

Toss the onions, garlic, thyme and marjoram with the wine and vinegar. Cook over low heat for an hour. Stir frequently and allow the liquid to evaporate.

Place about 1-1/2 tablespoons of confit on each crouton and serve.
