Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the onions and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are very soft and browned, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, stir together the sour cream, mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce; season with salt and pepper. Fold in the onion mixture until well combined. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour or up to overnight. Mixture can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

  • Arrange the bread in an even layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle each slice with about 1 tablespoon cheese. Bake until the bread is golden brown and crisp and the cheese is melted, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve dip with the cheese toasts and endive leaves.
