Very tasty, but DH thought it was too pickled, so I guess I should try balsamic vinegar next time. Two pounds of shallots yields 2+ cups of caramelized shallots. I made these to make Brussels Sprouts Gratin With Caramelized Shallots WS #511255.

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.

I am always on the lookout for great sides and this is one of them, being an onion lover this was a huge pleaser, I reduced the sugar to 1 tablespoon, thanks for sharing hon...Kitten:)

Yummy, Yummy, Yum-Yum! You don't think about serving shallots as a vegetable side dish, but they're more flavorful and delicate than onions. It's a wonderful accompaniment for an everyday roast chicken, but special enough to serve during the holidays along side a standing rib roast. Super, Super Recipe!
