Can’t wait to put these on my veggie burgers!
Easy Peary, used it with homemade ravioli filled with goat cheese spinach and Carmelita’s onion. Addd the Balsamico and used the mix to coat the raviolis, super!!!
Thanks for making this easy and it is so delicious!
Excellent especially on homemade burgers! Thank you!
It was delicious. Thank you for the recipe.
I loved this. The caramelised onions with the goat’s cheese were the perfect combination.
These are delicious! What a great recipe and thank you so much for sharing :)
These were amazing! We served these on Beyond burgers for a super tasty and plant-forward meal!
I’ve made these multiple times and can never get enough of them! I love the slow process and I think that’s the key to the whole recipe! If you havent tried this yet you have to! Cube up some potatoes and boil them separately and then fry them up with the onions! It’s everything! They also are fantastic on a flatbread pizza with figs and prosciutto!!
I caramelize onions for my meatloaf. I find rather than dicing up onions for a meatloaf recipe, if you take the extra time to caramelize them instead, it adds SO much flavor and helps the meatloaf stay moist and juicy. I slice them as you did above instead of dicing them because I think onions are a major part of a good meatloaf. Just doing this will make a whole lot of difference in how your meatloaf tastes. And it tastes so good I don’t think you’ll go back to raw diced onions again. I also throw in a bit more than recipe states but that’s just me.
The best recipe. I cooked it 2 nights in a row. My family, kids included, can’t get enough of the flavor it adds to our steaks and burgers. There is no shortcut to this recipe, but it is simple. Top your burger with these onions and a few avocado slices and you will never eat out again. Thanks for sharing.
They came out perfect. Thank you for your recipe it’s just as I remember my mom used to make.
I think you hit the nail right on the head. I had to send this recipe to hubby as he often does them in fifteen minutes, and turns them too often. jThank-you
My favorite dish to use the onions on is Sleek, a middle-eastern dish with sautéed greens and black eyed peas…yum!
I just bought a bag of black-eyed peas today…I know what I’ll be making this week! (Here’s a recipe, any readers out there who are curious). Thanks for sharing, Mary Lou.
thank you for being the first honest cook to write about caramelizing onions. it [upsets me] when I see a recipe that says 10 minutes. it takes a lot of patience and time to do it right. you did it right!
I did it! Really helps to know what to look for and how long it takes. Now if I could only have the same success with sugar.
Thanks for the salt tip, made a difference tonight. I wouldn’t add sugar, makes them too sweet for my taste.Being impatient, I’ve found this can be done in much less time if you go medium and cover them for the first minutes, I’ve never counted, just till they go limp and start to brown a bit. When you take the lid off allow the water to go back into the pan so the onions don’t dry out. If you do this, don’t walk away until you are at the lid off point or you’ll burn them.
If I’m doing it for steak n cheese I don’t completely caramelize because they cook a bit more when added to the steak and you don’t want them quite so sweet as in other dishes.
So glad I found this recipe. Now I can finally try making something I ate at Dreamland BBQ recently – Pulled Pork BBQ Quesadilla with caramelized onions. It was delicious! Gonna make them at home now.
My balsamic vinegar has expired. Even though it was never opened, I don’t want to use it and ruin the onions. What kind of wine is okay to add and how much? I have some sauvignon blanc…is that acceptable? Can it be added when I reheat since I don’t know how soon I will get a response?
Hi Dianna, balsamic vinegar is one of those few things for which the expiration date doesn’t matter. It can last for decades. Truly. If it is still pourable, it is still usable.
I have used stale-dated balsamic vinegar often and it’s never been a problem.
Fabulous! Didn’t get a look in with my Great Nieces and Nephew. Good job I made 3 lots.
