This Fried Goats Cheese & Caramelized Onion Bruschetta is out of this world delicious. Make it and love it like we do! I don’t think I can express enough how wonderful this combination is together.  First time I had it in a restaurant a few years back, I was hooked!  Today, I had a craving for them.  So, it we served it for lunch alongside the Fresh Mango and Walnut Salad.  A really great combination!

Bruschetta just has to be one of my all time favourite appetizers to make and serve. It’s easy, generally quick and so versatile. I can’t express enough how delicious this was. I’m already looking forward to making them again really soon.

If you’ve never tired this type of goats cheese, you’ll really have to try it out. I have to say, I was a little skeptical about the fried cheese before I tried it a few years ago. But guess what? I am not skeptical anymore. Go on and give it a try. You’ll love it like we do. And if you do love goat cheese, check out my Cranberry and Pistachio Goat Cheese Ball!

If I were to give any tips about this bruschetta it would be to serve it fresh!

Thanks for following along friends and I’ll be back tomorrow with something else delicious from my kitchen.

And like always, happy cooking!

  • 1/2 baguette cut into 6 slices on the diagonal
  • 1 large onion halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 6 oz goats cheese log cut into 6 slices
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 Egg white beaten
  • 1/2 Cup bread crumbs fine
  • Drizzle of Balsamic reduction


  • First caramelize your onions. In a medium skillet set over a high heat add the olive oil and the onions. Cook over high heat for about 5-8 minutes or until the onions have browned. Remember to stir during this process. Now reduce to medium and splash in some of the water. Let water evaporate and then splash in a bit more . Continue this process until you have used all of your water and the onions are completely caramelized. They will be soft to touch, dark golden in colour and sweet to taste. This will take about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Prepare your goats cheese rounds. Dip each one in the egg whites and then roll in the bread crumbs. Repeat for each goats cheese round and then place them on a wire rack set over a plate. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour before cooking.
  • Lightly toast your bread in the toaster and set aside.
  • To cook the goats cheese, heat the butter in a non stick skillet set over medium heat. Add the goats cheese and cook each side for abut 3 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan and put your bruschettas together.
  • Top each bread slice with the onions, then place a goats cheese round on the top and drizzle with the Balsamic reduction. Best served immediately.
