This is a kicked up version of my Caramelized Onions. Garnish a steak or just top a good slice of bread as my DD would do. Top those burgers for the super bowl games. I do love caramelized onions but this is really good with the added sherry gives it a creaminess. This makes a great start to onions soup!

YUM! Rita, I love these caramelized onions. The sherry really makes the dish. I used fresh thyme and rosemary from my garden and followed your recipe to a 'T'. Everything just marries together. I will definitely add these to my rotation. Made and devoured for ZWT5, for Hell's Kitchen Angels.

Delicious! We love caramelized onions and the herbs and sherry were nice additions. I made extra to be able to have some in the freezer. Thanks Rita.
