Bacon and Prosecco caramelized onions
I just needed to jot down this recipe that I recently came up with that I am in love with. It’s very simple, it requires few ingredients but it does take an investment in time. In terms of flavor it is well worth the wait!
Let’s get on it!
Serves 2. 40 min cook time
2 medium onions cut into 1/2” circles
1/2 cup Prosecco
1/2 tbsp brown sugar (for a little extra sweetness)
3 strips thick cut bacon
2 tbsp butter
Add butter to wide pan (you will need the onions in a single layer to ensure they cook evenly. ) and cook for a few minutes until golden. Add in the bacon and the sliced onions and stir. After about 2 minutes and some of the bacon fat has rendered a bit add in 1/2 the Prosecco. Cook on medium high heat for 2 minutes. Then reduce the heat to low-medium, cover and let cook for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
At the 20 minute mark the onions should be a pale brown color. If the liquid is completely absorbed add in the remaining Prosecco and 1/2 the sugar. The sugar helps balance the Prosecco. (If you’re making caramelized onions without Prosecco you may not need the sugar)
Cover again, stirring occasionally and cook for another 20 minutes until the onions are nicely caramelized.
Add it to your favorite breakfast dish like I did or to any meal you desire. Caramelized onions work well with so many things!
