Onions of the sweet variety contain more sugar than other onions, and it is the sugar that caramelizes, giving a deep golden brown color and rich flavor. If you can't find sweet onions, regular yellow onions can be used--just sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar over the onions and cook as directed.

Ingredients

2
tablespoons butter*
3
large sweet onions (such as Bermuda, Maui, Spanish or Walla Walla), sliced (8 cups)
1/4
teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Stir in onions to coat with butter. Cook uncovered 10 minutes, stirring every 3 to 4 minutes.
  • 2 Reduce heat to medium-low. Sprinkle salt over onions. Cook 35 to 40 minutes longer, stirring well every 5 minutes, until onions are deep golden brown (onions will shrink during cooking).
Tips  

Do not use margarine or vegetable oil spreads.
