I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine.
- 6 onions, sliced and separated into rings
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 6 tart apples, cut into 1/4-inch wedges
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- Cook onions in butter over medium heat 3-5 minutes.
- Add apples and brown sugar.
- Cover and cook 15-20 minutes until apples are tender.
Cooked onions first, then added apples after they were "carmelized".
Then added sugar.
I was looking for something to go with the end of the bag of frozen pierogis we'd gotten from either Market Day or Schwan's and I didn't have much going in the fridge. I searched and this came up. I was cooking for two, so used 1 yellow onion (sliced) and 1 gala apple (also sliced). First I fried 2 strips of bacon and left a tablespoon of that in the skillet for the onions. I carmelized the sliced onions for about 15 minutes before I added the apples as I was worried about the apples cooking too much. I wanted them to stay slightly crispy rather than mushy. I added the apples, and about 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and covered for 5 minutes. I topped with crumbled bacon. It was the perfect accompaniment to the pierogis. It would also be great with sausage--turkey or otherwise.
