I just love these sweet onions! I put them on grilled Portobello mushrooms, hamburgers, steaks, omelets and on grilled vegetable sandwiches.

This is a very good recipe. I don't use thyme or rosemary because I use the caramelized onions in a variety of ways, some which don't go well with those herbs. If I use large onions I up the brown sugar to about double and sometimes I use butter and other times olive oil. The basic recipe is easily tweaked to fit your tastes. I use the recipe as written for making chicken meatballs. It flavors them beautifully.
