Who loves onions? Onions are one of the most divisive ingredients out there. You either love them or you hate them. I, for one, loooove them. We go through them at volume in my house. I’m this close to buying them wholesale (very small space between my hands).
Anyway, if you love onions like I love onions, then you need to make yourself some caramelized onions. They take a little time, but are super simple to make and are an incredible topping for some of your favorite foods. Making a burger? Top with caramelized onions. Making pizza? Top with caramelized onions. Grilling a steak? Top with caramelized onions. You’ll probably never regret it. I haven’t tried them on a birthday cake yet, but don’t tempt me. The point is, they make almost everything better. And did I mention how simple they are to make.
Pro Tip: You can substitute white sugar for the brown sugar, or not use sugar at all. The butter is also optional, but it’s highly recommended. It’s really easy to make this recipe your own by experimenting with whatever you have laying around in your spice cabinet. Also, stir often so you don’t burn them, or burn them on purpose for some really wild flavors.
