Baked Vidalia Onions Balsamico
- Total Time
Sweet Vidalia onions and rich, caramel-like balsamic vinegar — combine to make a delightfully sweet, complex dish.
uncooked vidalia onion(s)16 oz, 2 (8-ounce) peeled, trimmed, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
olive oil2 tsp
balsamic vinegar2 Tbsp
fresh thyme½ Tbsp, fresh, chopped
table salt¼ tsp
black pepper⅛ tsp, freshly ground, or to taste
- 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.
- 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.
