So, who else isn’t ready at all for the Super Bowl and would rather rewatch all of Downton Abbey with wine? *Raises hand shamefully.* I must admit, I’m not a huge football girl. I used to be and then I found that I much prefer to watch dramatic soaps and unrealistic Lifetime movies. However, I can appreciate everything the Super Bowl represents and I just adore game-day food. But not just wings and pizza. I like gourmet game-day food. Like goat cheese stuffed jalapeno poppers, brie and fruit canapès and of course, these mini savory onion cheesecakes.
That’s right, SAVORY cheesecakes. At first, I was a little weary of them too. I mean, who puts onions in a cheesecake? What kind of demented freak? And then, because I had to taste test it, I smeared a little bit of the gooey cheese on a cracker and took a bite.
After one bite of the soft cheese and the caramelized onions, I thought “What kind of demented freak DOESN’T put onions on cheesecake?” It makes so much sense, in a weird way. Because of the soft caramelized onions and the savory flavor, you forget you’re eating a cheesecake at all. In fact, it’s more like an awesome mound of soft cheese and perfectly cooked onions. This is most definitely the perfect game-day appetizer because it’s sexy, gourmet and still absolutely delectable.
