French Onion Sliders

Yum


OK football fans or sammy fans, check out these mini sliders.

French Onion Sliders
are on the menu today!

All the flavors from French Onion soup go into this slider sandwich.  I love having sliders because they are small and just the right size for a quick bite.  These French Onion Sliders may be small,
but they are mighty in flavor!  Check out how easy they are to make...

adapted from Annie's Eats
Ingredients:
2 Tbsp butter
2 yellow onions cut into thin slices
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 tsp beef bouillon
1/4 cup water
pinch of sugar
4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
1 loaf French bread cut into 1/2" slices
butter

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a saucepan, melt butter.  Add onions, Balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.  Cook for about 15 minutes or until onions are soft.  Add the beef bouillon and water along with a pinch of sugar to the onions.  Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Take slices of French bread and place on a cookie sheet.  Toast in the oven for 2-3 minutes.  Remove from oven.
On 1 slice of French bread, spoon on some of the onion mixture, top with mozzerella cheese and top with another slice of bread to create the sandwich.  Butter the tops of the slider sandwich and return to oven.  Bake for about 14-15 minutes or until cheese melts.  Serve warm.




The mozzarella cheese covered onions are sweet and pair so well with the crusty, toasted French Bread.  I'm telling you, soup in sandwich form never tasted better!



I don't think you need any excuse to have French Onion Sliders!  Football game, Bunco party, lunch, dinner...you name it, you need 'em.
