Onions and eggs

16 Oct

When the garden gives you nice onions (or even if the good people at the supermarket sell them to you) …

… you saute them in olive oil real slow, until they’re nice and soft and caramelized, season with salt and pepper, toss in a couple eggs and scramble them up real nice.

A favorite comfort food around here — for breakfast, lunch or even dinner.

Not much of a story here, I know.

Damn fine thing to eat, though. So get on it.

Pasta with caramelized onion

27 Aug

And you thought I only ate Red Sauce.

C’mon. Even I know that caramelized onion is one of the great flavor profiles.

It might just be the simplest pasta sauce ever, too. We’re talking onion, oil, salt and pepper. That’s it.

Make this, would you.

Think of it as your White Album. Just without “Revolution 9.”

You take a couple onions (like these just-picked specimens from my garden) and slice them all up.

Season with salt and pepper and slowly caramelize in extra virgin olive oil (and a little butter if you like).

Toss in the cooked pasta of your choice, along with some of the pasta water, mix thoroughly and serve.

I like a little grated cheese on top, but that’s a matter of personal preference.

Then again, what isn’t?

Some people like “R9.”
