Are you looking for a way to inject mad flavor into your food, without adding calories or increasing the size of your jeans? I have the perfect solution for you: caramelized onions.
Adding caramelized onions to everything from plain white rice to mac and cheese, or even a warm salad will make it pop with flavor, but not add tons of useless calories.
I always find that it’s best to make a large batch of caramelized onions on a Sunday afternoon so that I have plenty to add to dishes during the workweek. If you don’t know how, check out my previous post on How to Caramelize Onions.

- Rice, whatever kind you like
- Pasta dishes, pretty much any
- Veggies, everything from artichokes to zucchini
- Mac and Cheese
- Over the top of Pot Roast
- Mashed Potatoes
- Salad, both warm and cold
- Gravies and sauces
- Omelettes or scrambled eggs
- Grilled Cheese or hot paninis
The possibilities are really endless! If you’ve tried adding caramelized onions to your dishes, what’s your favorite pairing and why?
