Caramelized Apple, Pear and Onion w/ Gorgonzola bruschetta

In light of our recent trip to the new Italian joint I wrote about a few weeks ago, we adventured into another type of Bruschetta...and it was a trip worth taking.

Sliced baguettes (1/2 inch thick)
1/2 yellow onion sliced into 1/4 rings
1 pear thinly sliced
1 apple (Macintosh or pink lady works fine) thinly sliced
1 tbsp butter
1 tbps olive oil
Proscuitto (optional)
flat leaf parsley

In a pan, over medium heat, cook the pear, apple and onion with the butter until they are brown and caramelized.  Let cool.  Toast the baguettes with the olive oil spread over the top in a 400 degree oven for 3-5 minutes until toasted.  Remove from the oven and top with a small amount of the cheese, prosciutto if wanted, and a small portion of the pear, apple and onions.  Place back in the oven for another 3-5 or until the cheese is good and melted.  Top with the parsley and serve.  This one is a keeper
