- 5-6 onions, peeled & sliced
- olive oil
- butter (optional)
- sugar (optional)
In a large shallow pan, on medium-high heat, drizzle olive oil until bottom of pan is completely covered. Toss in onion slices. Let the onions cook for 10 minutes.
At this point you can add 2 tablespoons of butter if you’d like, and 1 tablespoon of sugar(I have tried it with and without & actually prefer to skip the sugar)otherwise let the onions cook on med-high heat for at least an hour. You will see the sugars caramelizing. *the trick is to let the onions brown but not burn. ** If you notice the onions drying out and sticking to the bottom of the pan, add water.
I never knew it was so easy to caramelize onions! Its amazing how different onions taste once the sugars are released. We used them to top of steaks, burgers and ate them just by themselves!
