8) Remove your cooked portobello mushrooms from the oven and once cooled, cut in half and toss with the balsamic vinegar.

9) Once your onions are caramelized, transfer the onions to a small bowl leaving the melted butter in your saute pan.

10) Next toast your bread, lightly dip each side of the bread slices in the melted butter left in your saute pan and then toast on a heated cast iron skillet until it's the bread light golden brown on each side.
