Red wine makes everything taste better. I found this recipe online and decided to try it. Super simple, fast, and easy. You only need 5 ingredients: red wine, onion, fresh thyme sprigs, feta or goat cheese, and puff pastry sheets.
Cut the puff pastries into like circles or squares and bake them at 356 Fahrenheit for 20 min. While that’s baking, chop an onion into slivers.
Heat a pan of olive oil and add the onions. When they start to get soft, add about 1/4 cup of red wine to deglaze the pan. Cook the onions for about 5 min on medium heat and then add salt, pepper, and one sprig of thyme leaves. Add another 1/4 cup of red wine and reduce heat to low/medium heat. You want the onions to become really soft and really purple in color.
By this time, the puff pastries should be ready. Take them out of the oven, brush the edges with milk and add the onions to each pizzette with some crumbled cheese on top and a small sprig of thyme.
Then continue to bake for another 20 minutes. Once they are golden around the edges, they are ready to come out of the oven and to enjoy warm.
My parents and Nani enjoyed these thoroughly. The lovely red wine adds a delightfully sweet taste to the onions and you get the creamy cheese on top with fresh herbs. I think it’s the perfect appetizer! Anush everyone.
