SUPER TASTY CARAMELIZED ONIONS

As far as I could remember, at home, we always ate hamburgers accompanied by those succulent caramelized onions and I loved them soooo much!

So, here is a recipe I developped over the years according to my own taste. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do...

~ Super Tasty Caramelized Onions ~
Recipe by Rosa @ Rosa's Yummy Yums

Yields a medium bowl.

Ingredients:
5 Big white or red onions, cut into rings

2 1/2 Tbs Melted butter or ghee
1 1/2 Tbs Runny honey
1 Tbs Castor sugar
1 1/2 Tbs white vinegar or balsamic vinegar
1 Pinch paprika powder
2-3 Clove garlic, crushed or 1 Tsp garlic powder
1/2 Tsp Dried thyme
1/2 Tsp Dried oregano
1/4 Tsp Dried basil
1 Tsp Dried rosemary
Tabasco sauce, to taste
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Method:
1. Pound the dried herbs in a mortar in order to obtain a fine powder.
2. Heat up the frying pan, add the butter and let it get a little golden in colour (be careful not to let it burn), then add the onion rings. Stir.
3. When the onions are a transparent, add the crushed garlic, the paprika and the powdered herbs. Stir for about 1 minute.
4. Add the sugar and honey and keep on stirring.
5. Add the vinegar, and stir for about 3 more minutes or until the onions have a gluey coat around them.
6. Add some Tabasco sauce.
7. Salt and pepper to taste.


Remark:
Be careful to never let the onions burn. They should be golden.

Serving suggestions:
These caramelized onions are delicious when served hot with hamburgers and meat patties or just simply as an accompaniment to barbecues or strong cheese (Cheddar, Brie, Gorgonzola).
