New Years Eve Appetizer
Happy New Year!!! While 2011 was incredibly good to me, I’m feeling especially excited for 2012. I have a feeling it’s going to be a huge year and can’t wait to see what’s to come in the next 12 months. I hope you and yours had a nice New Years, however you decided to ring it in. Funk and I were lucky enough to celebrate with great friends as we bid adieu to 2011. We enjoyed some great food and drinks (including this amazing apple sangria that my friend Pam made) and I made Eating Well’s Caramelized Onion and Shrimp Bruschetta. Even though I made some minor modifications, it was delicious! I love anything that has a sweet and savory combo, and the currants and capers were a surprisingly perfect pair.

Step 1: Sautee onions for a loooooong time so they go from this:
Then add currants, capers, salt and pepper.
These were a big hit! My only recommendation is to top the crackers (or toasted baguette) right before serving. Otherwise, they’ll get a bit soggy from the moisture in the onions. I’m tucking this recipe away into my “insanely good appetizer recipe file” to make for future parties. Usually I’m the gal who brings cut up veggies and hummus, but not any more after making this recipe!
Wishing you and yours a ver happy and healthy New Year!
