1. Cut off crusts of bread then flatten with a rolling pin or empty wine bottle. Cut each slice into 4 triangles. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Fry triangles until golden brown and crisp. Remove from pan and set aside. In same pan add remaining 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter. Thinly slice 2 onions.
