Easier Than Caramelized Onions

This is a very simple recipe for no muss, no fuss caramelized onions with very little added calories.  I used this recipe on a pizza that was out of this world good!  I will be posting that next!  Enjoy!!!

Recipe barely adapted from - I Can't Believe Its Not Fattening by Devin Alexander pg. 225

Easy Oven Caramelized Onions
2 medium onions (1 red, 1 yellow), sliced very thin
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450°.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place the onions on the baking sheet.  Drizzle the olive oil over them and season them with the salt and pepper.  Toss them well.  Spread them evenly over the baking sheet.  Bake them for 20-25 minutes, turning about every 5 minutes, until the onions are cooked through and caramelized (soft and lightly browned).

Makes 4 Servings (1/4 cup each)

  4. These look great! Nice way to do caramelized onions without all the constant it! :)

  5. Just a warning, parchment paper - at least mine - is only good to 425 degrees. Of course the frequent oven opening probably keeps it cooler than 450.
