Balsamic Caramelized Onions
If you love flavor like I do, you're always YEARNING for something different than the same old same old condiments. You want yummy, yet easy- not meals that make you cry.
This week I bring you SPECTACULAR with the mighty onion. Yep. Onions. No more crying over them- in fact, you'll want to SING after you try this incredibly tasty, tangy and different side dish!
Balsamic Caramelized Onions are as easy to make as they are to eat. Slowly cooking them over medium heat brings out their sweet and tender side, making them a perfect accompaniment for so many dishes. We amp them up by adding the Balsamic Mosto Cotto taking them to another dimension entirely!
You can pair your meal / meats with any green side dish you may love- like mesclun greens, wilted spinach or even green beans.
I suggest you make a larger batch of these and keep them in the fridge- everyone will want to scarf them up and you'll wonder where they went. With so much flavor, and so few calories for a condiment, who could blame them?
