How To: Balsamic Caramelized Onions

Caramelizing Onions

Caramelizing onions is simply cooking them slowly in olive oil until the natural sugars are released and the onions have browned nicely. The flavor is so wonderful, and a lovely topping for pizzas, bruschetta, sandwiches, eggs, salads, burgers… and the list continues! Eat them warm, room temperature or even cold. I’m 99.9% sure I prefer them cold after they’ve been in the fridge overnight. Such a rich taste.

My husband hates onions and says they look like worms, and I guess they sort of do. Doesn’t change the fact that they are so good!

What I Used:

1 medium yellow onion, sliced into rings
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper

Drizzle of balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan. (optional)

What I Did:

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper over onions. Toss in sliced onion and give a quick stir. Continue to cook until onions have browned, about 20 minutes. Next, I drizzled with balsamic vinegar and stirred to deglaze the pan. I love the flavor balsamic adds to the caramelized onions. This is optional, but I find it takes them to another level.
