I have a confession to make.
I’ve never used the broiler setting on an oven before. In fact, I was worried I wouldn’t know how to use the broiler setting. Lucky for me there was a big button that said “broiler”. Go figure. The recipe doesn’t say whether to use high or low, so I went high.
Also, the recipe didn’t factor in all the cutting and mincing into prep time. So give that a solid 10-15 minutes. Especially if you’re a sub-par mincer like me.
Definitely didn’t know what a shallot looked like. I knew it was an onion, thought it was more like a scallion? Nah. I was wrong.
Anyway, as for the recipe itself, it’s all very straightforward. Mix the stuff, put on the bread, broil. I recommend splurging for the fresh bread in the bakery section, it makes it that much better. The only change I made to the recipe, and this will come as no surprise to literally anyone, I added more cheese on top. So I mixed in the 1.5 cups, and then probably did another cup on top. Also made it that much better.
I would recommend broiling it for just a tad longer than 5 minutes. The center was still a little lukewarm and the bread was only a little crispy. Still delicious though!
