Thursday Recipe

I'm going to try to get back to my regular blogging schedule and I thought we'd start off with the Thursday recipe. This is another one from the Neelys. Having lived in the South now for almost four years, this Yankee girl (even though I am not generally a meat-eating person) has come to appreciate good barbecue. I thought this appetizer is a good way to try some BBQ at home.


* Olive oil
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1 1/2 pounds onion, sliced
* 1 loaf French bread, sliced on into 1/2-inch slices
* 2 cloves garlic, smashed
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper
* 1/2 pound pulled pork
* Barbecue sauce
* Chives, sliced for garnish


Preheat the grill to high.

For Onions:

In a large saute pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons olive oil and butter to melt. Add the onions and saute, stirring constantly, until the onions are deep brown in color, about 20 minutes.

For Bruschetta:

Brush the bread slices with olive oil. Rub the garlic clove on the bread and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill in a single layer and cook until golden and crisp then repeat on the other side. Remove from grill and let cool slightly.

To Serve:

Top each piece of toast with a heaping spoonful of pork. Top with a spoonful of onions. Place a dollop of barbecue sauce on top of the bruschetta and garnish with chives.
