Caramelized Onions

Caramelized Onions are a beautiful thing.  They smell so delicious while making them and are so versatile.  

You must have some patience when making them, but they will be done within 20-30 minutes.  The resulting flavor of sweet caramelized onions will make you swoon!

Use Caramelized Onions on pizzas (Barbecue Bacon Pizza), burgers (Roasted Tomato Burgers with Garlic Mayo & Gouda) or grilled chicken (FPK Chicken Marinade).

Slice sweet onions very thin and sauté them in unsalted butter.  You want to do this over a medium-low to medium heat so that they don’t brown too quickly.  Stir them fairly frequently and if they get too dry, add a bit of water to deglaze the pan.

The onions are done when they are soft, golden brown and very fragrant.
