Caramelized Onions

Caramelized onions have to be my favorite condiment ever. They’re so flavorful and can go on almost anything. I’ve blogged about putting them in a quesadilla and a dip so far.

After the burnt caramelized onions from last week, I decided I needed to come up with a method to make caramelized onions. And I figured that I’d post it here. I’m sure everyone out there has a way they do this, but this is what worked for me.

Caramelized Onions

Ingredients:

1 onion, cut in half, then sliced
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
pinch salt

Directions:

Place olive oil in a 8" skillet with a lid. Turn heat on medium. Once the oil is warm, add the sliced onion.

Put a lid on the skillet. After about 2 minutes, give the onions a quick stir. If they are starting to brown/burn, turn the heat down a bit. Put the lid back on and set the timer for 5 minutes.

The onions should be soft, but not brown at this point. Remove the lid and stir the onions.

Add a pinch of salt to the onions. Continue to cook without the lid for another 10-15 minutes until caramelized completely.

    I love Cara’s stuff too, and this recipe looks great =) Spaghetti squash is so delicious…I love how you can make it more savory, or sweeten it up with the raisins and it is still delicious!

    This looks awesome! I don’t know why but I’m scared of spaghetti squash. I need to get over that and just try it. It’s bound to give me a nice healthy meal…which I can immediately ruin when I eat dessert..haha.
