  1. In a large skillet, saute onions in butter until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until onions are golden brown. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.

  4. Place bread on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 4-6 minutes or until lightly browned.
  5. Meanwhile, place the cream cheese, blue cheese, salt and pepper in a food processor; cover and process until blended. Spread each bread slice with 1 teaspoon cheese mixture; top with steak and onions. Yield: 4 dozen.

"This was fabulous.... just fabulous. I honestly can't think of one thing I would change. I went a little heavy on the cheese spread, so when I do it again, I will abide by the 1 teaspoon suggestion, as the blue cheese can be potent if you use too much. You will not be disappointed by this recipe!!!!"
