As Thanksgiving approaches, it's time to start thinking serious food! I know it's a little early but Electrolux Appliances has asked for submissions of appetizers and desserts for Thanksgiving and so it got me going down this track. This is my favorite food holiday and it's always fun to find new things to make for this great get together with family and friends.
While the day typically culminates with your typical feast, I like to spread the joy of eating throughout the whole day. This means lot's of appetizers and snacks for people to enjoy while still saving room for the main meal. These Blue cheese and caramelized-onion squares fit the bill perfectly. They are a great finger food, can be made ahead and are a nice different taste that will keep people coming back for more. The combination of caramelized onions and blue cheese is fairly rich but it's tempered by the light crust and rosemary that is cooked into both the onions and the crust. Be sure to use fresh rosemary and a high quality blue cheese for the best flavor.
