Caramelized onions are good as a side dish to serve alongside roast chicken or beef, but also make a delicious addition to sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, etc.

Caramelized Onion Halves



  • 6 medium onions
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Peel and slice the onion in half lengthwise.
  • Place in a bowl and generously drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt and pinch of sugar and toss with your fingers to combine.
