these are a great condiment - scatter over a pizza, chop & stir into mashed potatoes, toss with pasta & parmesan cheese! The possibilities are endless.

  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter in the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onions, the salt and pepper.
  3. Cook, stirring constantly, until the onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

So good! I could eat these out of a bowl by themselves...which I did a little! :) Mixed the rest in with my mashed potatoes. Will be making these again to add to our BBQ chicken pizza. Made for Best of 2012 Cookbook Tag.

Loved these! I used some on top of burgers and some mixed into mashed potatoes. They made both dishes taste so much better. Thanks Ma Hiker for sharing this great keeper. Made for Cookbook Tag.
