- 2 lbs (900 g) small onions, peeled
- 3 Tbs (45 ml) butter
- 6 Tbs (90 ml) brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp (1 ml) dried thyme
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Boil the onions in salted water until almost tender, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Melt the butter and brown sugar in a large skillet over low heat. Add the onions and cook 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until the sugar mixture coats the onions. Season with thyme, salt, and pepper. Serves 4 to 6.
