Caramelized Onions

  • Yield 1 cups

Caramelized onions make any dish feel a bit more special, and they are a breeze to make. Throw everything in a dish and bake for an hour…that's all!


1 large onions (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon fresh (or 1 teaspoon dried) thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Cut onions vertically in half; slice thinly into half-circles and transfer to a large bowl.  Add oil, butter, thyme, salt and pepper; toss well.
  3. Transfer onions to a shallow casserole dish or roasting pan.  Roast 60 minutes, mixing occasionally, or until browned.  Cool to room temperature. Transfer to jar, cover and refrigerate up to one month.  Makes about 1 cup.
