Recipe from Cooking Light

Sweet caramelized onions and salty Parmesan cheese flavor these bite-sized appetizers. Bake the day before the party; cover and refrigerate in the baking dish. Shortly before guests arrive, reheat at 200° for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, garnished with sour cream and chives.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 cups finely chopped onion
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 48 (1-inch) pieces fresh chives

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan; cook 15 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Spread mixture in a single layer in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine egg substitute, 2 tablespoons cheese, salt, pepper, and eggs. Pour egg mixture evenly over onion; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cheese. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until set. Cool slightly; cut into 24 pieces. Top each with 1/2 teaspoon sour cream and 2 chive pieces.
