sauteed red onion slices in a frying pan

Many recipes start with frying onions and then adding other ingredients, but if you really like sauteed onions, you can make it as a stand-alone side dish!   If you are always sneaking the onions from the frying pan, this recipe is for you :)

If you wondered why fried onions taste so good, it is because the frying process caramelizes onions and takes out the bitterness.  After the onions are fried, they trade their bitter flavor for the smooth sweet flavor that everybody likes!

Frying onions is really easy – all you need to do is put onion slices on the frying pan with a little oil and cook over medium, stirring periodically, until ready.

Fried onions are very versatile – you can use them as a topping on sandwiches and burgers, on the side with the chicken, meat or fish dishes, or as addition to salads.  Or you can simply these onions on their own :)
