This is a trick used by restaurants/diners. It whips the appetite and covers grease odors. Very effective!
Hehe, I've done this a few times before, sometimes with garlic over low heat instead - I figured I could always add the onion/garlic to whatever I decided on afterwards. ^_^
This is great! I'll have to try this next time I'm running late in the kitchen. You are obviously an experienced cook and I need to learn lots form you! =:)
I coojed this up and served over vegetarian goulash! Thanks!
To sweeten the savory aroma, use red onions! If you end making something that doesn't call for onions, either add them anyway, caramelize them and serve the as a side dish, or save them for another meal.
My, Oh My, that is the perfect title for this (recipe). I would go to the stove, throw some oil in the frypan and slice onions before taking off my coat, slowly saute them until I found what i was going to cook from leftovers, freezer or pantry and of course my recipes and it pacified by family. I think I was born in the wrong generation, my husband wouldn't step foot in the kitchen except to cook pancakes, eggs and fried fish. That is the extent of his cooking and so this recipe is a real winner! You can add to the cooked onions with meat and vegies or mix them in with mashed potatoes or make a gravy from this basic recipe. Debber, thanks for posting, I know this will help harried tired cooks after working 60 hour weeks and new cooks.
This worked great! DH and the dog were drooling. I had to keep kicking them out of the kitchen so I could think of what the rest of dinner would be.
BRILLIANT! That's another hour for Zaar a day! ; )
Mom worked 8 - 10 hours a day while I was growing up. This is what she did to keep us kids and Dad at bay. Except she would fry up some bacon and then the onions. As she waited for the TV dinners to warm. She would add a couple of frozen vegetables and sprinkle the onions and bacon bits over. The TV dinners where served up on plates never in the tins. I don't think it really fooled Dad, but he never complained.
My hubby came in the door and said. That smells wonderful, what are we having? I just chuckled and said food :D.
