Caramelized onions are terrific on everythingâ€¦ pizza, burgers, hotdogs, chops, steaks, brisket and are delicious in scrambled eggs, quiche or mashed potatoes….they even make an interesting (and delicious) dessert when served on sliced apples with a side of cheese. In fact, theyâ€™re great all by themselvesâ€¦I guarantee youâ€™ll find yourself eating them right out of the pan.
I think that I first read about this technique for caramelizing onions in Cookâ€™s Illustrated Magazine years ago and have been using it ever since.
When onions are cooked low and slow for an extended period of time, the natural sugars in the onions caramelize, imparting an intense sweet flavor and a beautiful deep mahogany color.
Caramelized onions can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or they can be frozen for up to 3 months.
