Caramelized onions add a sweetness to savory dishes. Use to top smashed potatoes, steaks, scrambled eggs, and more.
Recipe type: Side Dish, Sauce
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 Tbsp. butter (homemade using Fresh Breeze heavy cream, Lynden)
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar (BelleWood Acres, Lynden)
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced (home garden, Lummi Island)
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced (home garden, Lummi Island)
  1. Melt butter into saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and saute for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. As onions turn golden and slightly crisp, deglaze the pan with apple cider vinegar. Cook another 8 - 10 minutes until onions are caramelized and moisture has mostly cooked away.
