Ideas for Carmelized Red Onions

I had a delicious pizza the other day which used carmelized red onions. Any idea about what other dishes I could make using them? I'm in the UK, so don't mention Velveeta or any other great American products. :-) Thanks.

  1. Carmelized onions are great on a burger (no velveeta, please!). With a homegrown tomato!

      Definitely on a burger, and with boursin!

    2. Cook them down even further with a litle white wine and rosemary and use them as a pasta sauce. Best on whole wheat pasta. I did a blog post on them last year.

      1. I like a caramelized onion frittata finished with a little sherry vinegar (credit to Deborah Madison.) They are great in quiche too with any other ingredient. You can use them on croutons spread with goat cheese. Add to braised chicken dishes. I prefer raw onion on hamburgers, though.

        1. I like caramelized onions on baby spinach with a dijon vinaigrette. Yum!

          1. They are also very good with steak.
