Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 5 minutes

Cooking Time – 10 minutes


  • 1 Medium Chopped Onion
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt


  • Place the chopped onion with the butter into a frying pan. Cook on a medium/low heat to slowly caramelize the onions. The onions are ready when they are transparent and brown. Make sure your onions are finely chopped before you cook them.
