I was going to come at you with another salad today, but since Mondays usually blow we’re taking a different direction.  How about we start out this week with some Coco Loco Porter Caramelized Onion Crostini.  Heck Yeah!  And yes indeed I said Coco Loco Porter.  It’s an award winning craft beer from Charlotte’s own NoDa Brewing Company.

So if you have to go back to work on a Monday, shouldn’t you start with beer right out of the gate? Who’s with me?

What?  You don’t have beer for breakfast on Mondays?

Don’t judge me.

If you don’t have beer for breakfast, as an alternative you can feel 100% confident serving these Coco Loco Porter Caramelized Onion Crostini at your next NFL playoffs get together.  I mean, seriously. It’s an appetizer or party food perfect for football because it also includes beer! Duh.

Trust me.  You can’t go wrong.  If you can’t get NoDa’s beer where you are, you can substitute a porter that’s totally your jam.

Happy Monday and Cheers to a fantastic week, yo!

  1. Crostinis are one of my favorite appetizers, and I usually make a meal out of them! This caramelized onion version sounds delicious, Rachelle! I love the porter in here, sounds like it gives this such great flavor!

    • I can always make a meal out of crostini or just about any appetizer, Gayle! The porter is so delicious!

  2. These do look delicious, but I’m going to have to say no for breakfast! I want to be able to savor these and weekday breakfasts are too rushed. Plus a beer would just put me right back to bed! I love caramelized onions. Definitely saving this for the weekend….it will keep me going all week!

  3. This sounds like the perfect football food! I might even need a batch of these for the game tonight. I love the idea of using porter to caramelize the onions. That should win you the “Monday Winner” award! Seriously, though, great football app!

  4. I adore crostini, Rachelle.. but a crostini with beer and carmelized onions?! Yatzi! So.much.YAHS! I’d eat this for breakfast, no shame in that game! But, these would be perfect for a fooball party or appetizer night for dinner. LOVE these! Cheers, girlfriend! Xo

    • I’ll eat just about anything on toasted bread, girlfriend, but add beer and I’m totally in! You should come here and watch football!

    • I totally can’t wait for Sunday’s game, Annie! #keeppounding We pretty much cook everything in beer ’round these parts….

  5. Caramelized onions make any Monday that much better – especially with beer! Such a great idea! They would be perfect for game day!

  6. This would be a pretty good breakfast, with or without the beer. I love the caramelized onions! Those are so incredibly addictive!

  7. Dude, this is so coco loco! I like drinking beer and cooking with beer so obviously this recipe is a keeper. The only way I can bear Mondays is with beer…and Tuesdays…and Wednesdays…I really like this whole beer caramelized onions stuff on the crostini but I’m gonna make a triple batch of it and also put it on grilled chicken, pork chops, steak, in my omelette for Sunday brunch,etc, etc. 🙂

    • Hello, neighbor! Let me know the next time you’re headed to NoDa Brewery and I’d love to meet you for a beer!
