The past couple of years I’ve been having a love affair with caramelized onions. How could I not have known how delicious these slow cooked, sweet little morsels were. Now I make them on a regular basis and keep them in the fridge. The sampling during the cooking tends to lower the end quantity, so I always try to make a little more than the recipe calls for.
Adding the ginger gives the onions a little kick. Sweet + spicy is super delicious. I can’t wait to try a french onion soup with this combination. The caramelization process does take close to an hour to get the onions nice and brown so make sure you have the time.
Caramelized onions can be used many ways. Mix into mayo or greek yogurt for a dip or sandwich spread. Put on your burger (one of my favourites) or on top of a steak or pork chop. Place on top of a baked brie, or on crackers or baguette slices with your favourite cheese. Mix into eggs, on pizza, or in a pasta (mac and cheese). And of course these make the perfect french onion soup.
