The image to the right is before the lid goes on…

Caramelized OnionsOkay, welcome back to the caramelized onion and bacon show.  I know it’s taken a little time for me to get back to posting, sorry about that!

First, a point of order.  I have the after picture of the spread in my camera.  However, the camera asked to borrow the keys and is out with friends right now.  When it gets back, I’ll get the final picture uploaded.

However, in the meantime, you can go to YouTube and watch me make it.  But, there is one thing I didn’t provide: the recipe.

Caramelized Onion and Bacon Spread Recipe

Okay, here it is.

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoon butter (divided)
  • 2 strips bacon
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • salt

In a ceramic Dutch oven over medium-high heat, melt one tablespoon of the butter.  Then cook the bacon until it is crispy.  Remove the bacon from the skillet, crumble, and set aside.  LEAVE THE BACON FAT IN THE PAN.

Add the onions and a pinch of salt.  Cook the onions until they start to turn clear.  Then lower the heat to medium-low, put the lid on the Dutch oven and continue cooking for 45 minutes.

When you come back, the onions should be dark brown and sweet.  Drain any excess liquid, add the bacon back to the oven along with the rest of the butter.  Stir to melt the butter and enjoy!
