Start by slicking the baguettes thin on the bias into about 10 or 12 slices. Brush one side with some olive oil and put under broiler for 1 to 2 mins or until golden brown. Let cool. In the meantime, cook your bacon until it’s soft but fully cooked. Remove from pan reserving bacon grease. Add you onions. Season with salt and pepper. Let the onions caramelize and brown up adding some oil or liquid if they start to dry out. Chop up some fresh herbs. Sprinkle some of the herbs en Duxelles over the onion and remove from heat. Stir in fresh herbs. Rub each piece of bread with a garlic clove. Spoon onions onto bread and top with bacon. Add some creamy cheese here to if ya got it.
