Caramelized Onion and Steak French Bread Pizzas

I don't care who you are, what you do, or how hard you think your job is.  There is nothing on God's green Earth that will suck the energy and life out of you like being a teacher on the First Day of school.

This is what I made for dinner that day after I came home and collapsed for a few hours.

I called it "pizza" because I wasn't sure what else to call it.  That's really what it is, right?

A few notes about this recipe:
-This was to originally be quesadillas, but it was raining and I wasn't going to the store.
-If I wasn't going to the store for quesadillas, I sure wasn't going to the store for French bread.  I had one of the Pillsbury cans of French bread in the fridge.  That stuff is delicious.  It worked wonderfully.
-You really should add mushrooms to the onions.  I had mushrooms but they had been in the crisper drawer for one week...two weeks...okay, a month.  Why disturb them now???
-The process is what's important here, not the quantity of ingredients.  We all know that I never really bother to measure anything anyway.  Plus, it's not my business to tell you how much cheese to put on your pizza.  Does anyone ever really measure shredded cheese anyway??  So I'm not listing amounts.  Just suggesting ingredients.
-This is one of the best things I've ever eaten.  That's why you should make it. 

Caramelized Onions and Steak French Bread Pizzas

French bread, sliced lengthwise
caramelized onions (it took me 40 minutes to caramelize these onions.  it was worth it.)
leftover steak, diced
shredded mozzarella
shredded Parmesan

Place your bread, cut side up, on a cookie sheet or pizza pan.  Stick under the broiler for a few minutes to get it crispy.  Top with the onions, then the steak, then the cheeses.  Broil again until brown and bubbly.

Look at that cheese melting!

This is SO good.  The onions make it super-sweet and have a creamy texture.  It would also be great with some roasted garlic spread on the bread before topping with ingredients.
