Onion Chutney

Quick Homemade Caramelized Onions ~ perfect served with steaks, sandwiches, hotdogs and burgers

Oh, this is a good one !  You can whip up the Onion Chutney in minutes and serve it with so many dishes.

I served this on a Steak and Camembert Baguette and it was finger-lickin' good - see my assembly for the baguette after the recipe for the Onion Chutney.

Onion Chutney

{makes about a cup - 250ml}

2 Large Onions, sliced - rings or half rings
3 TB Butter
2 TB Brown Sugar
1/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar
Salt & Freshly ground Black Pepper

1.) Saute the Onion in the Butter until soft and just changing color over medium heat.
2.) Add the Brown Sugar, Balsamic Vinegar and season to taste with Salt & Black Pepper - simmer for approximately 5 minutes.

Serve hot or cold as preferred.

Double or triple the quantities below - depending on how many you'd like to make
