Peel and thinly slice onions. Heat oil and butter in a large pot or skillet. Add onions and cook over low heat for at least an hour until golden and sticky. Add salt and a few grinds of black pepper to taste. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice baguette and place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place in oven and toast for about 10 minutes until bread is a bit crispy and beginning to color. Allow to cool to room temperature. Spread chevre on each toast, top with a spoonful of caramelized onions and garnish with either a few flakes of  crushed red pepper flakes, chopped fresh chives, or a sprinkle of smoked paprika.
