This is one of Ina Garten's recipes that looked absolutely delicious.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a 12 inch ovenproof skillet melt the butter.
  3. Add the shallots and sugar, tossing to coat.
  4. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the shallots start to brown.
  5. Add the vinegar, salt and pepper and toss well.
  6. Place the skillet in the preheated oven and roast for 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the shallots, until they are tender.
  7. Season to taste, sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Bought a 1 pound net bag of GORGEOUS shallots at a Big Box store and searched for the perfect preparation. Ina is SO good with SO many foods, hoped this would be a winner. Prepared 1/2 recipe as listed. Flavor was "nice", but needed something more flavorful. I think some balsamic would have been more flavorful than "red wine vinegar". DH enjoyed it more than I, but it was nice to have a different side to chicken and stuffing. Thanks for posting, Juenessa.
