Caramelized Onions

These caramelize onions so deliciously addictive with their deep, rich and sweet flavours as the natural sugars in the onions caramelize.

A staple in any BBQ, caramelized onions are definitely a talking point among everyone when it comes to how to make them. There’s the very Aussie way of pouring some of your beer over them while they’re cooking, then the debate on which type of onions to use or even whether or not to use sugar. One thing is for certain is that no matter how you like them, they are just so tasty and goes with just about anything else you are having with your BBQ get together.

This is my take on them and if any of you out they give this a try let me know how it went. My trick to make sure you have enough for everyone is to have 1 onion per person, so adjust the recipe per person and you should be fine.

If you haven’t noticed yet, you can change the amount of people in the recipe card on any of the recipes in Dad’s Home Kitchen and it will change the ingredients accordingly for you. Here’s cheers to crying eyes.
