“Caramelizing onions transforms them into a savory, almost sweet golden-brown tango. Sweet onions like Vidalia and Oso will carmelize a little faster, but any onion will work. I love caramelized onions as a side-dish for any meat dish or scattered over a pizza. Also good on hamburgers and scrambled eggs. Plus you gotta have them if you want to make French Onion Soup!”
