Start off your movie night with Robert Mondavi Private Selection Wine

Just like most of your out there, I enjoy spending the majority of my time with my friends and family, exploring everything that the city life has to offer. Unfortunately, I hate going out during the winter months of the year and prefer to take the route of the bears and hibernate. Over these last few weeks, I’ve spent the majority of my time at home curled up on the couch catching up on some of my favorite televisions shows. While the alone time has been relaxing, I do miss seeing my friends on a more regular basis.

A few weeks ago I decided to invite a few of my favorite gal pals over for a “bad girls movie marathon which included movies like: Mean Girls, Bridesmaids, and the classic The Devil Wears Prada. . I do love to entertain at home and it’s during the winter that it’s easiest to invite friends over for a fun night in that includes some yummy appetizers and my favorite Robert Mondavi Private Selection Cabernet wine.

A recently picked up a few bottles of the newly packaged wine, a favorite of mine for its high quality flavors, at my local grocery store along side all the ingredients I needed for a few bite sized snacks themed with the movie selection!

From caramel marshmallow popcorn, a simple and delicious recipe to start off your movie night, to spaghetti pie muffin tins and caramelized onion crostini. The appetizers and wine are sure to get rave reviews from the crowd.

So how do you guys do movie night? Any fun tips to share on creating the perfect movie night experience?

Ingredients
Servings: crostini
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large sauté pan on a medium-low heat, melt the 1 tablespoons of butter. Once the butter has been melted, add your julienned yellow onions and mix well together.
  2. Continue to cook the onions down, stirring occasionally until the onions become a caramel color and smell sweet. This can take up to 40 minutes of cooking.
  3. Once your onions are caramelized, add your chicken stock to the pan to deglaze and mix the onions well until they become like a jam. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Take your baguette and cut into 1 inch pieces on an angle. Once you have cut up your baguette, sprinkle both sides with some olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Bake the bread for 10 minutes, flip over and bake the other side for 10 minutes or until crispy.
  5. Remove your crispy baguette from the baking sheet, top off with a tablespoon of caramelized onion and place on a serving tray. Serve warm and enjoy!
