I love caramelizes onions, however I have always thought of them as a difficult dish to prepare and I’ve really never tried it out. Let’s be honest, it was just easy to wait to be asked over by a dear friend who makes simply amazing goat cheese and caramelized onion appetizer, instead of rolling my sleeves up and do it myself! But one night I really got into this craving of caramelized onions, and you know…there is nothing you can do unless you prepare it yourself. And so I did. I called my friend asking for the recipe and then I started chopping (and crying!). So finally I am proud to tell you that it was very – but very – easy! I wish I could have experimented it before, although my waistline would not be of the same opinion! So there we go, with a fully approved recipe to give a special taste to your meat dish or yummy appetizers!
