Few things pack such intense and exceptional flavor quite like caramelized onions. Whether it’s a bowl of French onion soup or a charred flat bread pizza, the sweet and savory balance of an onion really can elevate any dish.
Caramelized onions do take some time and they cannot be rushed. If your heat is too high, you run the risk of the onions burning, resulting in a bitter final product. Alternatively, a little time and elbow grease will give you a wonderful pan of perfectly browned and toasty veggies. A little patience will result in an irresistible, gourmet treat.
For a step by step guide on How To Caramelize Onions, check out the page here on Coffee, Cabs and Bar Tabs.
And once you’ve mastered the technique, use up those sweet onion slices in a decadent sandwich, like the Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese on CC&BT. Cheers!
