For all my English friends, this is the first recipe in English on my blog! As you probably know, I am from Holland, so maybe the English is a little bit with a dutch touch. I hope it is fine, if something is not clear or something is written wrongly, please let me know 🙂
“It is monday again, the week is starting, the weekend is over. Time flies.. I have lack of weekends, I can use two weekends in one week! But ok, the things I had to do, I did, including a few nice activities (ofcourse because that is why there is something called weekend.)
One of the things I do every weekend, is making a weekplanning for meals. I search all the recipes, which I would like to make that week. Afterwards I go grocery shopping once. (often with my friend, because we buy a lot a lot a lot of food and I cannot carry it on my own 😉 ) I make my weekplanning because I hate grocery shopping.. I prefer to spend my time on other activities, because the weekend is already too short.
Therefore I think it is important that you can make my recipes in a short period of time. This recipe is an original recipe of my mom. Enjoy!
Baguette with union and cheese
2 persons/ 4 pieces
simple and fast
lunch & diner
This is what you need for 4 pieces:
- Cutting board
- Frying pan
- Oven paper
This groceries you have to buy:
- 1 baguette (for in the oven)
- 1 creamcheese with herbs (Boursin)
- 2 large tomatoes
- 1 big onion
- grated cheese
- A little bit butter for baking
Suggestion: for dinner, dubble the quantities.
Suggestion: Also very nice with some baked mushrooms.
Suggestion: Do you not have grated cheese? You can also use sliced cheese as well.
This is how you make it:
Step 1: Preheat the oven – 200 degrees
Step 2: Cut the unions into rings. Bake the union in the fryingpan and with some butter.
Step 3: Meanwhile cut the baguette open and through the middle. You have four pieces now.
Step 4: Wash the tomatoes and cut them into thin slices.
Step 5: Spread all four pieces of baguette with a thick layer of cream cheese or Boursin.
Step 6: Then place the fried onion rings (and, if you would like, the fried mushrooms) over it.
Step 7: Now place the tomato slices on top.
Step 8: Sprinkle finally a thick layer of grated cheese baguettes on top.
Step 9: Place the bread on a ovengriddle covered with greaseproof paper.
Step 10: Bake the four pieces of bread, on 200 degrees. About 10 to 20 minutes. The baguettes are ready when the cheese has a tasty browned appearance. *
* Please note that this varies by oven, so regularly keep an eye on whether the baguette is not brown too quickly. Otherwise, turn the oven slightly lower.
Serving suggestion: This bread is really nice for lunch. You can also eat it as dinner with soup. Bon appetit!
