  • 1 pound onions ideally sweet ones such as Vidalia
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • pinch salt


  • Peel onion, halve and slice thinly and evenly.
  • Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat and add oil and butter. When butter is bubbling, add onion all at once and stir to coat with butter.
  • Lower heat to medium and cook slowly for about thirty minutes. Stir often, but let onions brown on the pan before turning.
  • Sprinkle with salt, and continue cooking slowly until dark brown, sweet and fragrant.
