Caramelized onions are like the butter of the gods

Caramelized onions are so good they’ve brought me back from a laziness-induced semi-retirement from blogging. I made a big batch of these when my CSA box showed up overflowing with oniony goodness. When six large onions and a half of a stick of butter spend two hours or so in a big old Le Creuset dutch oven truly magical things happen.

Things I did with this batch of onions:

  • Used as a key condiment in a turkey sandwich
  • Tossed with pasta, peas, and roasted chicken for a simple supper
  • Mixed with ricotta cheese for a homemade ravioli filling (with wonton wrappers…so easy)
  • Gave a jar to a friend who had us over for a truly exceptionally amazing dinner
  • Smeared on toast with crumbled goat cheese
  • Filled an omelet along with spinach and ham
It’s my goal to always have some in the fridge or freezer since there’s nothing a little bit of caramelized onion can’t improve upon.

I make things. And do things. And think about things. And stuff. And whatnot.
