Anyway, that great recipe for sweet onions from Simple Italian Sandwiches makes about two cups. That’s a lot of onions and you can only eat so many of the same sandwich (even when it’s a fantastic sandwich like that). Sure, you can freeze them for later, but if you want to eat them up there are a lot of great and tasty uses for them.
Here are a few ways to get you started:
- homemade pizza – I made my favorite deep dish crust and topped it with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, sauce and these onions. Mmm, mmm, good! Totally worth every bite.
- sweet onion and beef stir-fry – Thin strips of beef, quickly stir-fried and mixed with beef are a great topping for white rice. Best of all, it cooks up ultra-quick.
- bruschetta – Top some French bread rounds (little slices) with a good amount of onions and top with freshly grated Parmesan and then bake a 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the outsides of the bread brown slightly for a tasty appetizer.
