Caramelized onion with Zamorano cheese


Peel the onion, cut it in half and then slice it finely. Pour 30 ml of Spanish olive oil into a saucepan and heat it gently. Add the onion and let it cook slowly for 3-4 minutes. Add a pinch of salt. Keep the onion on the heat until it becomes translucent. Add the brown sugar and cook for 15 minutes and then pour in the vinegar. Increase the heat to medium and let it reduce for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the caramelized onion cool. Prepare four slices of bread and toast them lightly. Put some of the caramelized onion on each piece of toast and place a thin slice of Zamorano cheese on top.
