This week's rather unusual Wednesdays with Donna Hay recipe was Blue Cheese and Caramelised Onion Brioche, chosen by Kayte of Grandma's Kitchen Table. Kayte and I were joined by Margaret and Chaya in making this snack/side dish.
I live in a suburb with a large Jewish population and apparently not that much of a French influence, because I couldn't get brioche even at the French bakeshop, but I could buy challah at the supermarket:
The onion jam that I used was given to me for Christmas by my Pilates instructor, Emilia:
It is homemade, and no, you can't buy it. But if you ask nicely I might be able to get the recipe from Emilia :)
You spread your brioche slices (umm, challah) with onion jam:
then top it with Granny Smith apple slices:
and sprinkle some crumbled blue cheese (I used gorgonzola) on top. You then take the brave move of tipping it upside down into a pan to toast, then flip it over and toast the other side.
What can I say - yum! A really nice combination. Thanks for choosing Kayte. You can visit Kayte, Margaret and Chaya in a few hours to see what they thought.
