There is nothing more fabulous than pairing meat or poultry with something sweet and tangy. These onions definitely hit the spot.
What I love about them is their versatility. Combine them with cheese, especially goat’s cheese, or serve them with pâté. In order to make life easier, make a big batch and use when needed. It will keep in your fridge for a few months.

- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 8 1x
- 4 large onions
- 60ml (4 tbsp) butter
- 60ml (4 tbsp) balsamic vinegar
- 10ml (2 tsp) sugar
- 1.25ml (¼ tsp) sea salt
- Peel the onions and slice them in half from top to bottom. Trim the top and bottom of each half.
- Cut the onion halves into chunks by cutting at right angles to the original cut. Make the pieces as consistently sized as possible so they will cook evenly.
- Set a large saucepan on the stove over medium-high heat and let it warm up. Add the butter to the pan. When the margarine melts and begins to bubble, add the onions. Stir the onions so that they are well coated. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the onions begin to sweat (look glossy).
- Add the balsamic vinegar, sugar and salt.
- Continue cooking on low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes until the onions have softened, stirring occasionally.
- Take the pan off the heat and serve warm. If making ahead, allow the onions to cool and then store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
- I used red onions for their lovely colour, but don’t be afraid to use white or brown ones.

I know it may be 8.30 in the morning but I culd eat those, they look yummy.
Know what these would be good on? A grilled sandwich! With some goat cheese and roasted red peppers. I can just imagine it now...
Ooh this looks good. I'm bookmarking this one as a possible food gift to make for friends for Christmas!
What a beautiful dish! I love to make onions this way. They are so good on sandwiches and salads, and we love to make homemade onion pizza. Thanks so much!
These look fantastic! I'm adding them to my to-do list.
Finally made these tonight, absolutely divine! Thanks for the inspiration.
Hi! I adapted thi recipe to ingredients I ha on hand and I translated it for my blog. I should manage to publish it shortly. Hope it's ok! Thanks for inspiration, they were awsome!
I've made these a few times now and I'm addicted. Also, this is the easier version of the recipe on the internet. A sandwich without balsamic onions is a lack luster sandwich. Maybe I'll grow tired of them, but I'm living it up now.
This is great on a burger then topped with goats cheese!

My eyes after those onions were cut open!
