Blue Cheese Steak Toasts

I know you want to see pictures of the Royal Tea, but I am waiting on a few photos from Meg. It was fabulous by the way!
Today was my Junior League project. It went really really well! Clare came to help me and she was a life saver. I could not have run my booth without her help. The kids had a great time and loved all the food. Here are some pictures from the event.
Our adorable logo.
 Welcome to the Santa Monica Pier!
 Clare and I at the Beach!

 Our class room set-up, isn't it cute!
 I bought sand pales to put our ingredients in.
 I bought a seashell cookie cutter to cut the tortillas. The kids loved them.
 Click here for the recipe for my "Stuffed Quesadillas."

 The kids ate them up.
 Some fun girls that were on my projects committee!

I loved these steak bites. Of course I like anything steak and anything with blue cheese!

Blue Cheese Steak Toasts
1 onion
6 garlic cloves
1 1/2 Tbsp butter
1 large New York Steak
Loaf of French bread
1 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup blue cheese
salt and pepper
Slice onion and mince garlic. Add butter, onion and garlic to a skillet and cook on low for about 30 mins.
Slice bread into 1/2 inch slices. I only used 4 and put the rest in the freezer for the next time I need French Bread.
Place on a baking sheet drizzle with a little olive oil and bake on 375 for 5 mins.
Trim fat from steak. 
Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
Onions are still caramelizing....
Put cream cheese, blue cheese and salt and pepper in a small food processor and blend until smooth.


The onions are ready! Remove from skillet and set aside.
Cook steak on in same skillet for 5-6 minutes on both sides. Remove from skillet and let rest for 2 mins.
Spread toast with cheese.
Slice steak into thin strips.
Top toast with steak and caramelized onions.
You could make these into smaller steak bites and serve them as an appetizer if you buy the thinner baguettes.
