    Fabulous! I added a little Turkey Bacon in the sauté part of the recipe. I used a little Ghee Butter and Avocado Oil – which turned out to be a perfect combination for browning the onions. I also tossed in a few dried roasted garlic slices bit otherwise, followed the recipe and sliced the onion in larger pieces. Theres almost no way to screw it up.

    This is an awesome easy dish!!! Yes, its starts out as a lot of onions, however they reduce quickly a 1/4 the size. The hard part was convincing my husband to stop stirring the onion and letting them sit and brown on the bottle of the pot. I uses a sweet resiling to deglaze the bottom. I plan on making this again for Thanksgiving
