Caramelized Onion Bruschetta

I adapted the caramelized onion dip recipe to transform it into a simple appetizer. The onions can be made in advance and warmed in the microwave before assembling. This is a really easy recipe to make and who doesn't love sweet onions? 
Caramelized Onion Bruschetta
makes 36

2 large Vidalia onions
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces goat cheese
1 baguette

Cut the onions in half and then slice them into 1/8-inch thick half-rounds. (You will have about 3 cups of onions.) Heat the butter and oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions, cayenne, salt, and pepper and saute for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 more minutes until the onions are browned and caramelized.

Slice the baguette into ¼” slices and toast under the broiler for 1 to 3 minutes, until just browned. Cool.

Spread goat cheese onto each toast and top with a heaping spoonful of the caramelized onion mixture. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper and serve.
