I could eat caramelized onions by the spoonful. I love the way they taste. I love the way they make my house smell when they are caramelizing. And I love the way they make mashed potatoes taste better.
Servings - 8 servings
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp white sugar
- 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 2 large white onions thinly sliced
- 6 large Russet potatoes
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/2 cup milk or more for creamier potatoes
- Salt and pepper to taste
Caramelize the onions - heat the olive oil, sugar and balsamic vinegar in a large skillet. Add the chopped onions. Let cook over medium-low heat for 30 minutes, stirring often.
Peel, cube and boil potatoes in a large pot of water. Once soft, drain and mash with the butter, milk (or whatever else) and salt and pepper.
Combine the mashed potatoes with the caramelized onions.
Serve warm as side dish.
