Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a skillet, melt the butter with oil over medium-high heat; add the sliced onions then sprinkle the sugar over the onions; cook stirring with a wooden spoon for about 20-25 minutes or until onions become golden brown and tender (depending on the size of your skillet try not to use more than 4 onions at a time or they will not caramelize properly).

Step 2

Season with salt and pepper and continue to cook stirring for an additional 5 minutes.

Great tasting and easy to do. Cut recipe in half for just 2 of us and used them on homemade Patty Melts.

I made the onions and used them to make a sweet relish for our burgers. It was delicious!

Deliciously sweet and tender. I used these on hot sausage with peppers and onion subs. Tasted even better than the fair!

I made these onions to use in a French Onion soup I was making. They worked out well and we loved the soup. I will use these in many more ways when the occasion arises. Next I think with hot sausage sandwiches!
