Sweet Vidalia onions and rich, caramel-like balsamic vinegar — combine to make a delightfully sweet, complex dish.

Ingredients

uncooked vidalia onion(s)

16 oz, 2 (8-ounce) peeled, trimmed, and sliced 1⁄4-inch thick

water

¼ cup(s)

olive oil

2 tsp

balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp

sugar

2 tsp

fresh thyme

½ Tbsp, fresh, chopped

table salt

¼ tsp

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Spread the onions evenly in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish; pour in the water. Drizzle with the oil and vinegar; sprinkle with the sugar, thyme, salt, and pepper. Cover and bake until tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. Uncover and continue baking, adding water 1⁄4 cup at a time as needed to keep the onions moist, basting occasionally, until the onions are golden brown and caramelized, about 25 minutes. Garnish with the fresh thyme sprigs, if using. Yields 1/2 onion per serving.
