Caramelized Onions


Caramelized onions are about as yummy as it gets as far as breakfast foods go.  They are fabulous with Scrambled Eggs, sausages, mushrooms, and garlic.  They are also a delicious, easy, and gourmet side dish that pairs nicely with steak.


  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Slice the onion according to instructions in this post.
  2. Coat the bottom and sides of a skillet with the oil.
  3. Turn the heat on high, and add the onions to the pan.
  4. When the oil begins to sizzle, turn the heat down to medium-low and put the lid on.  Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The onions should be translucent by then.
  5. Remove the lid, and add the salt and pepper to the onions. Stir.
  6. Continue to cook for 5-10 more minutes, until the onions reach your desired caramelization.
  7. Pour a few tablespoons of water into the pan to deglaze it. Toss the onions to coat them in the glaze.  Serve immediately or use in a recipe.
