Good on it's own and also can be used to top casseroles, put in sandwiches, top baked potatoes, etc. You have the option of adding breadcrumbs or not.

This sure is good on its own and is very simple. (Eating it now :) ) It's different from other caramelized onions I've tried but it stands on its own. I used a different but very good type of bread crumbs minus parmesan and ate this as is when I was too lazy to really cook for lunch. Thanks, Sharon. Lovely! My plate's now empty. :D
