Whiskey Butter Onions

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

I made up these sauteed onions one night to top a beef and Swiss sandwich; they're perfect on burgers, steaks and the like and a little swished around in some fried potatoes doesn't hurt, either. Please use a good whiskey, something like Maker's Mark is excellent, and don't be afraid to add more whiskey if you like! Also, this recipe doesn't make a large quantity; the onions are best when eaten immediately.

Fantastic! I used more onion and I sprinkled a tablespoon or two of sugar into the onions. I am not a drinker, so I just used a little tiny bottle of whiskey (like the kind on the airplane).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small skillet saute onions in the butter until slightly softened (but not too limp).
  2. Add thyme, then stir in the whiskey and Worcestershire Sauce.
  3. Increase heat to brown onions a bit and cook to the doneness you like (I like them to still be a little on the crisp side; that's also why I slice them on the thicker side).
  4. Serve immediately.
