Caramelized Onions

These are the caramelized onions used in the Baked Macaroni and Gouda recipe. Once you get these made though, you will realize they can go in just about anything -- pasta dishes, pizza topping, on burgers, in eggs, on a sandwich, the possibilities are endless!

Caramelized Onions
Prep 10 min
Cook 30 min
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
2-1/2 pounds onions, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
2 teaspoons sugar
In a large skillet, melt the butter in the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper, and cook, stirring constantly, until the onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the sugar and cook, scraping the browned bits off the bottom of the pan frequently, until the onions are golden brown, about 20 minutes.
