Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 Cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

Directions

In an 8-inch frying pan, cook the onion in the olive oil over very low heat until caramelized, stirring occasionally, for about 25-30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Beat the eggs in a bowl and stir in the cheese. Add to the pan and transfer to the oven. Bake until almost set, about 5 minutes; the center should still jiggle slightly when the pan is shaken. Remove from the oven and serve.

Caramelized Onion Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.
