Santa Baby

The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.
George Carlin

Today is for all of us who need to let our spicy bad girls out once in awhile to enjoy themselves. Have fun and enjoy the bling, bling of life.

Open Faced Prosciutto, Ricotta and Red Onion Sandwiches

Ingredients
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
4 cups thinly sliced red onions
1 tablespoon golden brown sugar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
4 1/2-inch-thick slices crusty bread (each 4x6 inches)
8 thin slices prosciutto
1 cup ricotta cheese
Fresh rosemary sprigs Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and sugar. Cook until dark brown and tender, stirring frequently, about 16 minutes. Mix in vinegar and crushed pepper. Cook until mixture is thick, about 1 minute. Season marmalade generously to taste with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange bread on baking sheet. Brush with remaining 2 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with salt. Bake until crusty, about 8 minutes.

Overlap 2 prosciutto slices on each toast. Top with 1/4 cup cheese, then marmalade. Garnish with rosemary.
