Start out with something creamy, crunchy, and savory. This appetizer will definitely get you in the mood... you know, for dinner!
2 cups chopped sweet onion (about 1 large onion)
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
3 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese, room temperature
10 frozen mini fillo shells (like the kind by Athens)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, salt, and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir until slightly softened, 3 - 5 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium low. Stirring frequently to ensure onion doesn't burn, cook until browned and caramelized, 20 - 25 minutes.
Transfer onion to a bowl. Add cheese wedges, breaking them into pieces, and stir until melted and evenly mixed.
Place shells on a baking sheet and evenly distribute onion mixture among them.
Bake until shells are lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Enjoy!
