These onions are great on burgers, salad or vegetables. Without the final 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, they could also be used as a substitute for the jarred onions in the recipe right. Adapted from a recipe by Ina Garten, foodnetwork.com.
3 small onions, red or white
1/4 cup plus (optional) 2 tablespoons good balsamic vinegar, divided
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut onions in half from top to bottom; slice crossways 1/4 inch thick. Place on baking sheet and toss with 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until tender. If you want the onions caramelized, bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove from oven and toss with remaining vinegar.
