Sunday Dinner at the Grover Hotel: Ornery's Easy Cooking Tips: Caramelized Onions


Some of you will probably roll your eyes at this post and say: "well, THAT is not exactly brand new information, Ornery Old Lady."

Well, it is to me. I just learned how to caramelize onions recently. So, for those of you who have not been let in on the secret, it goes like this.

Cut up your onion. Toss it with a little oil and seasoning. I like Kinder's Seasoning blends, but plain salt and pepper will work just fine.

Cook your onion in a skillet on medium-high heat until it starts to soften and brown. I like to use a cast-iron skillet.

For each small to medium-sized onion or half of a large onion, add 1/4 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Cook and stir until the onion becomes caramelized and jammy.

Caramelized onions are super versatile and go well with meats or other vegetables. Put them on burgers, alongside steak, chicken, or pork, or put them in a grilled cheese sandwich for an easy and different flavor. I don't recommend using American cheese for this. I like grilled cheese sandwiches made with American cheese, but the flavor just isn't right for combining with the caramelized onion.

Enjoy!
