On one onions

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

Ingredients:

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!

Flexing my mussels and Popping bottles

Mussels in Prosecco sauce with grilled whole grain bread slices. Mussels are my go to dish! I love it because it makes me feel a little bit fancy but it is cheap and quick. I am not kidding about cheap, they are around $2.99 per pound in most stores. I get them fresh from the […]

Calamari two ways – Grilled and fried calamari with tri-color pearled couscous in a tomato shrimp head sauce. This morning I woke up and had a taste for something a little special. I dug into my freezer and found the last bit of calamari and some frozen shrimp heads I had. The couscous calamari combination […]

Plantain 1 on ya! – gno fuss island gnocchi

Plantain gnocchi with brown butter Alfredo sauce and fried basil I wanted to created a meal that reminds me of home but slightly elevated. I grew up in the Caribbean and plantains were a staple in my house, we LOVE them. My preference for eating them is fried, slightly over-ripe, not too soft so when […]

Sal and Hassel

Baked lemon salmon with caramelized onion au gratin potatoes and sautéed garlic kale. Salmon is one fish that is easily accessible and tasty enough that it makes its way into all of our kitchens. I am somewhat of a purest when it comes to seafood, I don’t add much sauce or stuff them with more […]

Oh Pudding, your colors are popping

Me as Frenchie brioche breakfast pudding. French toast muffin with blueberry and raspberry compote and Kahlua whipped cream. Dressing up like the recipes I create has become compulsory, in an odd way it completes the look. Even though I am in my apartment during quarantine, I still want to have an experience around my meals. I want […]
