2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 large onion, thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 thin baguette, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 large garlic clove, halved

How to Make It
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet. Add the onion; cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally until browned, 1 hour. Season with salt and pepper.
Preheat the oven to 300°. Lightly brush both sides of the bread slices with olive oil and arrange on a large baking sheet. Bake the crostini for 5 minutes, or until crisp, but not golden. Immediately rub 1 side of each crostini with the garlic. Let cool on the baking sheet.
Meanwhile, prepare an ice water bath. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add the eggs and return to a boil, then boil for 7 minutes. Immerse the eggs in the ice water bath until completely cool, then peel and transfer to a medium bowl. Lightly mash the eggs with a large fork. Gently stir in the chives, vinegar and the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
To assemble, top each crostini with the onion, followed by the egg salad and a piece of anchovy.
