Here’s one way to take your dinner party to the next level: Make a big batch of caramelized onions. Not only will they make your kitchen smell delicious, but they are also a tasty addition to whatever you are serving.
We typically serve it as accompaniment to a juicy steak or dijon pork loin. It also goes well with side dishes like roasted vegetables, sweet potatoes, and mashed potatoes. You can even put a little dab atop some bread and cheese. Pure heaven.
No matter what you serve, this golden goodness will go fast. I’ve watched guests pass a ramekin of caramelized onions around the table going for seconds or even thirds. It’s irresistible!
Bon Appétit has you covered with instructions and video. I suggest starting them an hour or two before your dinner party (the aroma always commands compliments to the chef and I’m a glutton for praise), but they can easily be made up to a week ahead.
