How to Make It

Step 1

Place pecans in a single layer in a baking sheet.

Step 2

Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly toasted.

Step 3

Melt butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in onion and sugar. Cook, stirring often, 20 to 25 minutes or until onions are caramel colored. Add garlic, and cook 2 more minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand 30 minutes.

Step 4

Process onion mixture, goat cheese, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor 30 to 45 seconds or until ingredients are well blended and smooth. Spread mixture evenly onto cut sides of bread. Place on a baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated and edges are lightly browned. Cut into 1-inch slices. Drizzle evenly with honey, and sprinkle with toasted pecans.

This was really yummy! Very rich. You can probably only eat one. I found that the cheese mixture goes a lot further than a small loaf of French bread. I used a large loaf & there was plenty of spread to cover each half.

I made this for my husband and his friend for an afternoon snack. I halved the recipe as goat cheese is expensive and there were only three people eating. I had two pieces and they devoured the rest. I guess, I'm not a big fan of goat cheese (probably should have picked a different recipe for myself) but the other two eating loved it!!

Really yummy and savory; I served it on Christmas Eve and it really felt festive and special. I made sure to extra caramelize the onions and I think that added to the sweetness.

I made this last night for a holiday party I attended and it was really yummy. The guests seemed to really enjoy it. However this definately tastes better served warm as it got cold sitting out it was not as good, still good but not as good.
