Caramelized Onions

"I know that there are several recipes for this out on Zaar, but this is my absolute favorite. I think the balsamic vinegar gives it just the perfect touch. I usually make a huge batch of this and freeze them for easy future use."

    Wonderful! I used just a tablespoon of butter. And we have a specialty store nearby that sells flavored balsamic vinegars, so I used the cherry one. My hubby doesn't like onions, but when I added some of these to the spaghetti sauce he asked what was different and then declared it the best sauce he's ever had. Thanks so much for sharing!

    We love caramelized onions and this recipe did not disappoint. The balsamic vinegar is indeed a nice touch. I made as written and will make again. Thanks for the post.

    I doubled the recipe so as to put some in the freezer, but we enjoyed some just cooked on a BLT sandwich made with crusty ciabatta. The balsamic vinegar and lemon juice are great together and I loved the blend of flavours with the sweet onions. Thank you for sharing this super recipe! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

    These are great. I do think the balsamic vinegar adds a wonderful flavor to these. I tasted some and am freezing them for a later use with steaks or pizza. Thanks for sharing!

    Just made it. Delicious. I used butter instead of oil, cause out of it. Yummy. I am having it on pizza tonight. Linda
