The onions are sweet and perfect, but alas the parmesan dominated, so I would only use 1 teaspoon per serving next time and double the basil/onion mixture. Quite crisp after broiling, so best served with soup and dunked right into the warm broth.
Caramelized Onion Bruschetta
Serve with an entrée salad, a pasta dish, or a hearty bowl of soup.
