Caramelized onions are such a warm, comforting food on a cold winter night. They pack a lot of flavor without adding too many calories.

Here are 3 steps to achieving perfection:

1. Heat some oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add thinly sliced white onions. Cook 15 minutes, stirring frequently or until onions are lightly browned.

2. Reduce heat to low; add 1 tablespoon butter. Cook 25-30 minutes or until onions are completely browned and all liquid has evaporated.

3. Season with salt and pepper.

Try your caramelized onions on top of a burger, as a start to french onion soup, or try this recipe for Caramelized Onion, Canadian Bacon, and Egg Sandwiches.
