Eric and I love caramelized onions. They are sweet, flavorful and add wonderful texture to any dish. When I saw this recipe, I knew before I even made it that it would be a winner. Pinot Noir is our favorite wine, so we really couldn’t go wrong adding our favorite wine to caramelized onions. The wine gave the onions a beautiful color and a deep flavor that went perfectly with our Goat Cheese Turkey Burgers.
Pinot Noir Onions
1 large vidalia onion, sliced
1 sprig thyme
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2/3 cup pinot noir
-In a heavy bottomed skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.
-Add the onions and the thyme.
-Reduce the heat to medium low and cook with a pinch of salt until the onions are soft golden brown, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
-Pluck out the thyme sprig and then increase the heat to medium-high.
-Add the wine and cook until it’s almost completely absorbed, about 5-10 minutes.
-Serve on top of your favorite burger.
