Roasted Red Onions with Balsamic Vinegar

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Tebo3759

The sweetness of the onion and the flavour of the vinegar make this a hearty fall side dish. If you are using a well aged expensive balsamic vinegar the sugar may not be needed.

Good one Tebo! I cut the cooking time back to 45 minutes (Ilike the onion to still be a bit crisp) and I used sweet onions. Nice addition to the dinner
