Caramelized Onion on Your Indoor Grill

"I only recently discovered caramelized onions and discovered this technique by mistake when I was grilling chicken and some vegetables one day on my counter top George Foreman. I realized the onions started to look and smell just like caramelized onions made on the stove top. I have started making my onions this way since then. I love to use it in sandwiches. I usually make one serving for myself, which is how I wrote the recipe. Just up the amount of servings if you wish."

Ready In:


  • 1 medium onion (thinly sliced and separated into rings)
  • 1 tablespoon oil (more or less depending on the size of onion)
  • brown sugar (optional)
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Plug in your George Foreman and let it heat up.
  • In the meantime prep your onions - slice them, toss them in a bowl with the oil, salt and pepper to your taste and brown sugar (again, to your taste if you wish.).
  • Note: I find the sugar makes them brown faster.
  • When the grill is hot enough, use a pair of tongs and place all the onion rings on the grill.
  • Let it grill on one side for about a minute and then start "stirring it" with the pair of tongs.
  • You don't need to constantly do so at the beginning, you can leave it to sit for 30 second intervals. After about 5 minutes you want to pay full attention to it though.
  • After 10 minutes on the grill it should be soft and caramelized. But if you want it even more so, grill for 5 more minutes, stirring all the time with the tongs.
  • Take off grill and serve as desired.

I'm 23 years old and I live in Trinidad. One of the islands in the Caribbean. I love baking and have a major sweet tooth but I am trying to cook more savoury foods and I am enjoying trying new recipes. Recently I have come to love photographing the food I make. Too bad they don't all come out photo worthy, but at least they still taste good! lol <img src=> <img src="">
