Is it just me or do the words caramelized onion just make your mouth start to water a little bit? [Say I’m not alone.] I always have onions on hand and cook with them probably 4 times a week. My house almost always smells like caramelized onions. And I’m really ok with that. Now take said onions and add sharp cheddar and wrap them in a scone. Well, thats more then ok with me. Insert caramelized onion and cheddar scones. [Insert drool here.]
I have not always been an onion lover. When I was younger I really didn’t like them. [I didn’t like a lot of things when I was younger.] But the older I get the more I realize I am slowly becoming my mother. She is a huge onion fan. Like orders extra where ever we go. And when I ordered extra grilled onions on my burger awhile ago – I could see the writing on the wall.
Don’t get me wrong – I love my momma. [LOVE!] But you don’t think you will grow up to be just like her. Well folks, I’m here to tell you we are all our mothers. We are just one order on extra grilled onions away from realizing it. [And since my mom reads all my posts (probably to see if I talk about her) – HEY MOM!]
But really, caramelized onions are one of my favorites. I use them in almost every recipe [besides the sweets] and always have at least one or two in the fridge. Now add in sharp cheddar cheese and some fresh sage. [Yea, I forgot to mention the sage.] Perfection. Pure scone perfection.
